: : : How strange to be back--for the moment anyway! With lots of hair-pulling, uncontrolled bursts of unlady-like verbiage (and the help of a neighbor's iMAC), I was able to read the new issue of The Courier. I am pleased to see that I was not listed among the obituaries! However I was saddened to see the demise of several commrades--Sassy, She Who Tracks etc....I have been in the bush alone for too long! I miss everyone and hope to be around a little more!

: : To the Esteemed Courier Editor:
: : I must agree with Miss Penny Pilgrim that the Demise of certain MohicanLanders is Sad beyond belief and much to be deplored. But I must also say that the recent Edition of The Courier has been most entertaining and enlightening. I am so pleased to find that the Ascone continue to make a presence and the Women thereof should continue in their forthright manner to hold sway over Ascone events, and Uncle Wiscone himself!! It is much to be admired!!
: : The news of the MohicanLand Women's Circle Coffee Club also deserves praise, as one cannot underestimate the felicity gained from the improvement of a woman's mind by the reading of good works such as those of Col. JFC (be they recipes for Duncan Toast or Whatever).
: : Please, I pray thee, continue to enlighten us with the activities of MohicanLand, and should you find reason to bump into the poor Richfed, please give him my sincere Condolences on the Loss of his Almanac and may he find a suitable Substitute to occupy him.
: : Yours with Admiration,
: : English Trader
: PS -- Persuant to me previous missive above, is it within the purvue of the MWCCC to recommend a recipe for Duncan Donuts? These are rapidly becoming very popular (with espresso) in varous parts of the Huron territory.
: Best Regards, as always,

Dear Esteemed English Trader,
Thank you kindly for taking time out from your incessant wheeling & dealing among MohicanLand colonists to ink your thoughts on our latest Courier edition.
Yes, 'tis true the demise of certain MohicanLand characters is deplorable. However, when you gotta go, you gotta go. Look at the bright side, ET. MohicanLand's population rates have soared as of late. Surely there will be more characters of ill repute willing to step forward & be victimized. Have hope, ET.
The Ascone women have been successfully swaying Uncle Wiscone this sway & that for quite some time. They say the trick is to procure a goodly supply of fresh horse meat.
The loss of Poor Richfed's Almanac was a severe blow, to be sure.
Perhaps he might consider seeking gainful employment at The Courier to ease his suffering. There will always be gossip & sensational tales to report on, thus, economic security shouldn't be a problem. Or he might consider hiring Hessians to raid Ol' Ben's Philadelphia Print Shoppe.
The MohicanLand Women's Coffee Circle has certainly been an enriching cultural experience for our previously mindless females. They are now quite mindful of all things worthily salacious.
Per your request for a Duncan Donut Receipt, this from Mrs. Mary Long Carabine;
"Get yourself a fresh English Muffin. Whip until it becomes pale & frothy. Add a goodly amount of Spice & Rum for good measure. Beat it about 'til it becomes pliable. After further kneeing,
you'll knead to punch holes in the Muffin. (You can use either a Biscuit Cutter or a Musket to blow holes through the Muffin.)
Deep fry and Voila! Duncan Donuts! Serve quickly with Espresso or
Black Tea from China & ignore all protestations made by the English Muffin concerning violations of his Charter to make the world English."
We hope you fully enjoy this Duncan Donut Receipt, ET. Mrs. Mary Long Carabine swears by it ... in fact, she swears by everything.
Thank you for your thoughtful thoughts.
