Mebbe I shoulda warned ye that the drinks can stay with ye a bit, but knowin' yer reputation for holdin' yer own among the hunters and trappers, it never occurred to me ye would have a problem there. Ye do look a mite under the weather today; yes ye do. I'd be pleased if ye'd stay by the riverbank and don't do any more o' yer purgin' in the cabin til I get it aired out some. Hows about I build ye a small half-faced shelter, and ye can stay here by the canoe with Hector for company. I see he's dug in under it agin. Consarned hound, wish I knew what's ailin' him!
As to replenishin' yer stores, ye wouldn't be thinkin' o' takin' up that call for skunk oil that's posted on the tavern door, would ye? Seems like a fair way of gainin' some gold to buy supplies, iffen ye can stand the obvious downside o' the business. Started thinkin' about it when I saw Simon Girty skulkin' past here a few days ago with a pretty rank smellin' knapsack slung over his shoulder. Wouldn't wonder if he's decided to go for some o' that bounty money himself.
Well, you just rest here under the willow for a while, and I'll be about gatherin' some saplings for that half-face.
