Three Tales and I hope that this latest missive arrives at Fort Augusta in time, afore you leave for any rendezvous with us, or afore you leave to rendezvous with the 77th at Hunter's Fort. While traveling south of Boone's Fort we caught sight of a strange looking man with a small herd of sheep. When the man caught sight of us, he took off through the woods at a trot herding the sheep in front of him. Now a curious yell accompanied his quick departure. For Three Tales and I heard him explain as he ran out of sight, "Pax Aye, Pax Aye! Uncle Angus says move along, my dears." As you know, dear Cousin, only the Gunn clan knows of the clan cry of "Pax Aye" and the only Uncle Angus I know is your father and my father's brother Angus who disappeared from Scotland many long years ago. Three Tales and I are now following this man's tracks (and his dear sheep), in hopes that it is truly our lost Uncle Angus. We travel east along the Chillisquaque toward Fort Bosley. While there we will also inquire if Girty and McKee have been seen. While we take this side trip, please enjoy yourself with the young Lass of Augusta. But, be careful of her wiles and wants. Pax Aye!
