: Cousin Seamus......
: The trail to Ft. Morris today was covered without problem. My feet barely touched the ground as brother ManyFlags and myself flew as birds over the ridges and streams. We arrived here just at dusk. As we grew near the Fort, we raised the call to be recognized, so as not to be mistaken as undesireables. My woman, TwoBottle, ran out to meet us.....i don't know how she runs so fast in her fringed white deerhide dress......nearly knocking ManyFlags in the creek to get to me. We greeted each other with "great jubilation"......much to Flags dismay. He has been complaining like an old women lately.....ever since we've left his Minister's daughter he has been "in a mood"!
: We are grateful for the jerked venison and parched corn Uncle Quasi gave us for the trail......we never stopped until i was holding my redhaired angel in my arms outside the gates of Ft. Morris. Cousins Malcolm and Davey are here....it is wonderful to be in the company of so many friends and relation again after the excursion into the western region to pluck you from the Devil's clutches. You are a very lucky soul that our Uncle Angus is protecting us all here in this hostile land.
: I must go....i have "business" to tend to with TwoBottle......ManyFlags will be in a very foul mood tonight. We have spent so much time in each other's company of late.....he will be lonely!!
: Travel safe and swift....
: ThreeTales, Scout for the 77th
Flags and Tales arrived at this place just nigh of sundown. Such a public spectacle of affection ThreeTales and his wife gave to the crowd! It must be the savages they were raised up by....rollin' in the dirt and such......the Mistress Campbell had to turn here back for blushin'.....and all the men....well, they just stared. Many Flags threw his huntin' bag down and stompped off mutterin' somethin' about not havin' one of his own tonight......maybe one of Uncle Angus's sheep would be abligin'...if he could find one!
We are blessed to have our cousins here with us.....and we await your arrival from Carlisle. We are to leave here for Ft. Loudon tomorrow......and on to Ft. Frederick in a fortnight.
God be with thee,
Davey Gunn, pvt. 77th grenadiers
