: : Sir:
: : Some years hence I had the exquisite pleasure of attending the hanging of that notorious pirate Captain Kidd, who operated out of New York. It is well known that Kidd divided up his loot and dispersed it for safekeeping with various acquaintances. Needless to say, The Crown claims the right to any and all of the contraband.
: : We have recently reviewed a document penned by one J.F. Cooper, which leads us to believe that part of the loot of that scurrillous ruffian Kidd has been buried in a lake in the environs of Mohicanland. We are further led to believe that a character known to you as The Deerslayer, a.k.a. Hawkeye, a.k.a. La Longue Carabine was involved with Kidd's accomplice, one Thomas Hutter a.k.a. Thomas Hovey, and has knowledge of the whereabouts of the stash. We wish to locate this "Hawkeye" for questionning. Any assistance you can render will be highly appreciated and suitably rewarded.

: Dear Lord Twychen-Totter:
: It is my understanding that, since we're between wars for a day or two, Hawkeye is currently rendering his services to one Dr. Mary at her office out the northern sallyport. I have taken the liberty of forwarding your letter to Dr. Mary, and I am sure she would be happy to put you in contact with Hawkeye. To reach her office, get on the mail packet which goes up the Horican. As you near the fort, send in a message to Dr. Mary, and she will be happy to tell you where to get off.

My Dear Lord Twychen-Totter
My fellow officers here at my posting talk of a fort near the lake of which you speak. Several of my brother officers spent time in the company of an attractive young lady thereabouts. Perhaps, you may wish to interview them on the subject.
