Mohicaan Bountyess, you have been away too long! Welcome back.
: Said our esteemed Dutch Trader,
: "pointed-toe wooden shoes offer the ladies some impressive means of self-defence."
: Now, that is a good point!!!!
: But, may I add, why wait for the need to defend oneself? Take the initiative ... a well turned heel knows how to boot all scoundrels, scalawags, & scamps quite pointedly before they may seize an opportune moment to ravage & plunder.
It is true. If only the Camerons' would have had their pointed-toe wooden shoes at hand (or foot), the Ottawa and 2 Francais would have never had a chance. Maybe they wouldn't have shown up at all.
: As your wooden shoes promise to be a popular fashion item, might we find a Dutch Cobbler at the G2000 Trading Post?
Maybe, maybe. Let me study on that possibility, and I will get back to you.
: I hear the Scotsman's daughter, dear Miss Kate, is busily quilting her own stock of Trade Goods.
That sounds promising. I am sure that the Trading Post will carry an interesting variety of articles...
