I just now have received your dispatch and felt compelled to write back immediately. I believe we must now put Seamus in the hands of the Almighty.I do fear that he will be harmed or worse but we must still believe in the power of prayer, praise be.
I received the news of Seamus from our trusted scout, Caleb Miller. He is now deployed with supplies to Fort Aaugusta and then will attempt to help Timothy in the release of Seamus. Upon hearing the news of Seamus I asked leave of my captain to help in his release but it was not granted. I feel helpless in this matter.
I have been involved with a situation at the fort at Northkill.
It seems Commissary Young visited that post and only found Sgt. Popekins in charge. He immediately sent instructions to Col. Weiser to have an officer posted there post haste. Lt. Humphreys was then given command but he fell in disfavor with a certain widow Brown for his liking of a young girl Nanny Ellis. The Lt. and widow Brown then became close and as you can see it caused quite a stir. I have been back and forth from there and still find Lt. Humpfreys in command for the moment.
This post is small at 32 feet square with a very ill built cabin with no chimney in it. I feel it would be better to level this fort and post at Nicholas Long's house but alas I am not in command.
I can only hope that in due time we can all see one another again with Seamus in our midst. I hear my corporal Stolfi calling for me so I will have to close for now.
Please stay well my friend and best wishes to Davey Gunn and Pvt. Johnston.
