: Dear She,etc.
: It dismayed me to learn that you had shared your true identity with the English Trader while the two of you were cunningly plotting and cleverly conniving at your Cooperisms last week. Take care in the future how you lace your tea with rum - loose lips sink ships, and all that. Howsever, it appears The English Trader knows how to hold her tongue and has thrown some cunning and clever decoys on the trail to confuse the over-curious.
: Now we need to discuss your latest bout of flailing around in those gawdawful clothes. Get real, girl! So Hawkeye moved to New York and became a computer programmer or something - get over it! Your. . .er. . . Natty is forever bumpping around out there in the forest trying to get a life. You been trailin' the wrong buck! So get back in them leggin's and moccasins and pay attention to the tried and true
: Bent Twigg
: P.S. Sorry I snapped. Don't go burnin' your cabin agin, you fool.
Dear Sheriff Twigg,
I thank ye for your kind advice. I fear I lost sight of what the younker so often told me afore we lost sight of each other: them in the settlements has settlement gifts and them who choose to spend their time in the forests is a different sort of creatur' altogether - - or something profound along those lines. I see the sense of rethinking this; yes I do.
Meanwhile, I plan to braid the rest of that goldurned dress into my rag rug. Howsever, I'm keeping them French shoes. In addition to breaking up ice and crushing corn, I find them stilletto heels is useful for spearin' lacin' holes in buckskin. should have my new leggin's put together in a week or so. Should have a fine new pair of moccasins soon, too. Now that the Calm Bee Nation is back in business, the Bied Werks GMBH (German Merry Bee Hive) will be turning out decorated moccasins in no time.
