: : 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.

: : Major Effingham
: : His Majesty's 60th Regiment
: : (Royal Americans)

: >To Colonel Henry Hamilton
: commanding officer
: Fort Detroit

: As pursuant to your orders, Sir, Captain Andrew Bradt and my own Coy of Rangers have made contact with His Majesty's agent of the Indian Department, Simon Girty.

: We received information of armed Colonial Militia making their way north, and while leaving behind a party of Shawnee to track
: the Crowns two subjects as they seek the pirate treasure, the Girty brothers along with 400 Shawnee warriors expect to rendezvous shortly at Blue Licks with ourselves and 800 Wyandots, plus a handful of Captain Joseph Brant's scouts.

: Any reinforcements you wish to send to us [Crown or Native Allie] will be most welcomed and must be sent post haste, Sir!

: Your Most Obedient Servant ---
: Captain William Cadwell
: commanding
: joint expeditionary force
: Caldwell's and Bradt's Coys of Butler's Rangers

Dear Observer,

This is all shaping nicely into a cast of thousands. I beelieve we can start filming any time now. How is the supply of hair extensions holding out?
