: Sartan amount of commotion round hyere.
: If ye don't mind I'll jest find some
: shelter a little off the beaten track.
: Someone said that Simon Girty's been seen

: fall over me in the dark, if ye get my drift.
: There a place to get a bath around hyere?
: Seem to have come up with some fleas.
Have to admit, Hurry, the traffic has been a mite heavy lately. Howsever, it might be worth considerin' buildin' ye a cabin back in the woods some. Be happy to gather some of the local hulks from town to help with a cabin-raisin', although yer own gifts are mighty much in the way o' hewin' and haulin' the timber. Are ye planin' to stay around these parts long enough to make a cabin worth the raisin', or are ye figurin' on headin' out on a huntin' trip soon?
As to Simon Girty, there was a rumor he was seen in these parts recently, but I haven't seen hide nor hair of him meself, and I don't think he's likely to turn up with his skulkin' Shawnees in tow any time soon. Howsever, one never knows, do one?
Now, iffin yer wantin' a bath, there's the river right behind you, with enough water, I trow, to wash off even yer vast hide. I'll be happy to loan ye my scrubbin' brush so's ye can reach yer back, and I got a good sized bucket o' Grannie's lye soap, which yer welcome to dip into. As to towels, they're few and far between, and I would suggest ye build ye a good fire fer dryin' off when ye come out. Throw a haunch o' venison on the fire while yer cleanin' up - saves time and firewood.
