: Lord, but I'm glad to find you; I'm plumb froze and so tard I c'ld sleep 'till April. It mortally is cold and ain't nothin' to do but keep the fire roarin', eat a bait, and git somethin' hot inside o' you, like that hot buttered rum you offer'd. Hit'll sure be appreciated, ma'am.
: An' I got the money to pay. I'm an indentured serv'nt fer ole Miz Crone. Her house ain't the best, nor is the pay, but I do got a coin fer some rum.
: Thank you kindly, ma'am, and bless yer good heart.
Dear Mr. Jones,
An' a fine good evening to ye, Sir. Sorry about your miseries with the cold and all. I know it gets quite difficult for those who can't face west & real sudden-like turn left & head for the land of the Seminoles for a warm vacation, like I did. It just so happens I've got a drop or two left of the rum that I "borrowed" from Miss Marcia's kitchen (with full intent to repay her upon her impending arrival home, of course). I'd be most happy to fly you over a little toddy for the body, fer medicinal purposes, doncha know! It'll make a cold night seem a lot warmer, that's fer shure. Be looking out the door of your quarters around midnight, and I'll pull Ol' Purple up close & pass it on down to ye. Nevermind the coin...I have a feeling I can come to an agreement of another kind with you. Miss Sassy can use an extra pair of eyes around the village, if you get my drift. This soothsayin' business is getting too big for one person alone...time to bring in a stooge...I mean, an assistant...to help out a bit! What say you to that?
