: : DT, CT, ET, FT, & Mohicaan Bountyess - if we can procure one of them there frontier cabins, how about a Mohicanland Trading Post?????
: To The Celebrated and Much Missed, Elaine -
: Cher Madame 'boulette à sucre', please allow me to say how fervently we missed your Inspiring Presence during your Absence from us. We were bereft, forsooth. But now your Beneficence and Benignity shine upon us again!
: Madame, I would be most greatful if you would bestow upon me the privilege of undertaking the Ordering and Organising of a Gathering Trading Post, as you have suggested, on behalf and with the assistance of my Esteemed trading colleagues, FT, DT, CT, and the Mohicaan Bountyess. Indeed, the lack of suitable Trade Goods was sorely felt by those Gatherers who were in dire need of such wampum earrings as would add just that Special Touch to their Mohicaan attire! I vouch that Gatherers of the New Millenium will most joyously visit upon a Trading Post established for their patronage.
: Please accept this most Humble offer of Assistance, I beg of you.
: Yours in Esteem etc.

Cher marchand anglaise et ami,
Merci pour le sucrerie, quant à moi, pas davantage "boulette à sucre"!!! (Mon reputation et honneur sous-entendre, oui?)
I humbly thank you for the warm reception upon my return to the civilized wilds of Mohicanland. Your alliterative style and linear logic (not to mention your 'boulette à sucre') commends you above all others to Order & Organise our Trading Post venture. Suitable Trade Goods, as you say, are sorely needed in our frontier sojourn.
I trust our CT, DT, FT, & Rookie will submit their lists of sundry goods for our Traders Guild review. We will procure a fine cabin from the Delaware (who are asking more than twenty-four Dutch guilders these days) suitable for our Trading Establishment. Perhaps we'd be wise to err on the side of caution and invite Simon Girty & his Wyandot brothers to Trade lest they trash, no?
I accept your most generous offer of assistance!
Regards, Esteemed English Trader,
