: My Brother,

: You ask too much and give too little - it is the way of the White Man. We would share in the buried treasure, since we are in need of powder and other supplies for our tribe. But we cannot return to the tribe without the trophies of the warpath. Would you make women of us like those skulking Delawares? No. We will help you recover your treasure, but we must take the scalps of The Redheaded One and the Old Crone to hang on the poles of our wigwams so our young women will smile on us and welcome us back to the camp.

>What need ye' of gold trinkets?
Alas, Ah' will share a portion of the bur'eed treasure with ya',
BUT the red-haired one is mine!
Y'all may do as ya' please wit' th' old crone 'n' anyones else we run across on th' wartrail, that should please yar' squaws ;-)
Oh, a'fore Ah' forget, as they've tres'pessed into Shawnee huntin' grounds, Mah' Shawnee brothers 'ave dibs on the canoe 'n' the goods within, ceptin' the bur'eed treasure 'n' th' women...

They's not hard ta' track from shore, they's make 'nough noise bickerin', but its findin' th' best ambush site 'n' makin' sure they'd got th' treasure...

Yar' assis'tence is 'preaciated...
