: : : : : I am sending this message with BlueSkyWomen in hopes that she can intercept you before reaching us here at Ft. Loudon. She is a dear freind and companion from my childhood village and can be trusted with my secret. ThreeTales' cousin, Davey Gunn, has warned me of what you have said, and I implore you to be silent on this matter. I know that ThreeTales has not yet heard your accusations, and I pray he never does.
: : : : : You did see what you claim, but it was none of the lads that you suggest. Only I, and the lad, know the truth of the matter. Continuing this will only do harm to us all. Please let it be.
: : : : : Besides, if you persist, I will inform ThreeTales of your advances last autumn at Ft. Freeland. Your goose will be cooked, as they say, and ThreeTales will have stuffed Seamus for his supper.
: : : : : TwoBottle, wife of ThreeTales
: : : : : (holder of more than one secret)

: : : I do fear that Davey Gunn was most correct about your state of mental health due to the terrible beatings you endured at the hands of the Shawnese warriors and that devil du Ranck. You are now trying to communicate in some foreign language to me. If you are proposing an apology........then I accept.........as I have always admired your person, and do not want to see you come to any harm at the hands of ThreeTales. This matter, as far as I am concerned, is finished. I now only fear for your mental saftey, as you may come to some harm considering your recent actions. I shall mention this to Davey and Malcolm so they may keep an eye on you.
: : : TwoBottle, wife of ThreeTales
: : : (protector of your soul)
: : TwoBottle--
: : Since you seem to have forgotten your native tongue, likely from living among us for so long, I will tell you what I said.
: : "Peace, TwoBottle! Peace!
: : We paddle canoes where the water is deep... Let us get out and go on shore today. Peace....
: : ThreeTales loves us...he loves you, TwoBottle...he loves me. Your secret I keep. Ft. Freeland? I am innocent!"
: : Have no fear, it is so....
: : My head is fine, thank you. I wanted to keep our communication secret, should it fall into the wrong English hands. That is why I spoke in your tongue.
: : Seamus
: Dear Seamus.......
: Please forgive me for not understanding your last message, for I have never seen the native language written before, only spoken. But, as you stated, I have been with the whites now for a long time, and do not have the opportunity of using that speach.
: I agree, this matter is over, and our secret is safe.
: You are innocent as far as Ft. Freeland only because I was not receptive to your advances, but, that too, is now a forgiven event. I am glad that your head feels better, and am excited that we will see you and your party in a day or two's time. I wish to meet Uncle Quasi for the first time, as all the cousins speak so loveingly of him, he must be proud to have a son such as you. I am glad you have the chance to get reacquainted with your father. I never had the knowledge of my parents, and so wish to have met them just once, since I now have children of my own.
: Travel safe and in the company of Angels,
Thank you, my friend...and you, too!
