: Greetings to all Citizenry of Mohicanland,
>>>>> Hellooooo, English Trader!
: I have returned from an arduous adventure tracking down She-Who-Tracks,-etc. for the second meeting of the CCCC (Cunning Clever Cooper Clan).
>>>>> Ah! Tracking the Tracker ... a bold venture, indeed!
I had the great honour of presenting to She-etc. Herself some of the King's tea, brought direct from the Island our Homeland (having paid the King's high duty for said tea, against which I hope there may some day be a great revolt).
>>>>> And I once had the honor of receiving the King's costly tea from the gracious English Trader. I've heard one Mr. Adams from Boston shares your hope & plots as we speak.
She-etc. in turn rewarded me with the results of extensive corn-grinding (and had admirably swept the floor of her cabin), and we had a fine meal together
>>>>>> One question; was the corn parched? It has to be parched before it can be fine meal.
: with a cup of strong cup of tea, nice and hot
: (even if it was done in a coffee pot).
: Oops, there's that Trader Rhyming gene coming to the fore again.
>>>>>> Now, we all know the Dutch Trader will read this dispatch & will be penning ditties once again - after your lead!
: Most unfortunately, Pilgrim Penny was not able to respond to our smoke signals, so we are going to have to reconvene in due course, as my travels are sure to take me 'round to She-etc.'s frontier cabin (assuming I have had enough successful trading to afford some means of transport and tolls, as She-etc. lives WAY WAY down the pike, which is an expensive proposition), and we hope PP will be receiving smoke signals again.
>>>>> Godspeed to all CCCC members!
: Meanwhile, the CCCC has arrived at a plan of action to amass our learnings about Cooperisms and to fill the voids, as we lack knowledge of many Cooperisms, and in time to present Mohicanites the results of our labours so that they, too, may share in the joy of more Cooperisms.
>>>>>> We anxiously await these cunning Cooperisms!
: I might add that She-etc. has the most extraordary understanding of Le Longue Carabine, that one wonders how much longer he can avoid falling into her clutches. She-etc. quite amazes me.
>>>>>> She-etc is MOST resourceful in her relentless pursuit of Le Longue Carabine. Her recent stab at "femi-nine" arts was quite a thing to behold!!! Mr. Carabine would be well advised to not let down his guard ... or his Killdeer! Lessen' he's the marryin' type...
Regards, English Trader!
