My Dear Sheriff Twigg,
Pursuant to issues discussed at our clandestine meeting at Pilgrim Penny's cabin last weekend, I assume my Delaware runner will find you proceeding toward my estate on the Schoharie with your contingent of scouts to rendezvous with The Rangers. There seems to be some confusion as to just what sort of storm is brewing on the frontier, but at this point we have received messages which lead us to believe there are Indian warparties contending with longhunters for some pirate treasure supposed to be buried in The Glimmerglass, and there seems to be some question about rights of the Crown versus rights of the Colonials to claim the loot. Also we are not unaware of the urgency of rescuing your two citizens who have somehow gotten themselves embroiled in this affair. Bloody complicated mess, is what it is! It is unclear just whom we will be fighting, but I'm sure we will pick up the right trail as long as we have one Bent Twigg to guide us.
We will proceed toward Otsego at dawn on Monday.
His Majesty's 60th Regiment
