: I've a friend who says it is not meant for us to question the gifts bestowed upon us, and surely dumb beasts are not endowed with enough gifts to question their own. Howsomever, we as creatures of some reason, must know where our gifts lie. The gifts of those of us that roam the forests neath lofty ramparts know the we have been given gifts different from both the four-footed as well as those that dwell in those parts that are closer to civilzation, or within it's safe embrace. If the musk of these varmints is what ye be after, then you'll be sad to find that ye have none if pelts is what you're askin' after. This particlar beast has such gifts elsewhere, and there's where you'd best be looking. And as for yourself, keep well within the limits of parts that are civilized or you'll be likely to find your gifts of little consequence compared to those of others.
Dang, if it isn't old Hurry Harry! Glad to see ye in this part of the colony! I see yer still of an inquirin' turn o' mind when it comes to the relative gifts o' the creaturs and the Christians - never did git that settled in yer mind, did ye, Hurry? Well, suppose ye jist come on over to the cabin, an' we'll do a little philosopherizin' on the gifts of a grey squirrel in a pot o' stew afore ye head out into the howlin' wilderness agin. Wouldn't be thinkin' o' goin' after some o' that bounty money, now would ye? What do ye hear o' the whereabouts of La Longue Carabine lately? Seems like I been trackin' that dude forever!
