: 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!

Them that has more than a passing acquaintence with meself know that I seldom pass on the offer of a meal, and squirrel is fine enough for me. You from these parts? Have they been holding their own against the French and Mingos?
You've asked me a pretty question about a man who is known by many names. Longue Carabine is what they call him up in the Canadas, though those who've known him well enough to call him friend might call him Hawkeye, or even Pathfinder. Before I answer, perhaps ye'd best relate the reason ye be lookin' for him whilst I'm busy with yer stew.
