Praise be that you are well. I just read your dispatch and was pleased to hear from you.Please be on constant guard with that Girty still about.
I have heard after our meeting yesterday that I may indeed be travelling south to Fort Frederick in the late spring. It was good to see Seamus again. Col. Weiser has also told us that we will be sending a detachment to Augusta for a short time. I am hoping that I will be able to accompany Adjutant Kern to Augusta and return in time to head south.
I will indeed alert my men to ask for the where abouts of Many Flags and Three Tales and if I come in contact with them to invite them to any comforts I can offer.
I have not yet met your Aunt Maggie nor her husband but will
endeavor to do so next time I am in the Allemangel area. My patrols keep us constantly busy and I can only hope that our powder and flints soon come!
I must tell you what a delight the lass Nancy was. I believe Seamus would be a very happy man were he to take her as his bride. Time will tell.
I fear that Col. Weiser did not appear well yesterday and I can only pray that whatever affliction was present be be relieved soon. We need his sound judgement.
I must see to my men's needs so till next time, God's speed.
At Fort Henry,
