: I have employed LoneWolf, a Delaware scout, to find you on the trail, and deliver this dispatch of importance. I was speaking to Lady Elaine last evening around the campfire, and she relayed a story of great concern to me. She told of an occurance that happened at Ft. Freeland in the fall of last year, and involved you and my soulmate TwoBottle. We must speak of this when you arrive here at Loudon. I will give you full time to explain this disturbing tale, for I am sure I have misunderstood the details of it.
: We must not have differences between us as we make our way to Ft. Frederick. You will not want to travel the trail in front of me with such thoughts on my mind.
: We are all awaiting your arrival, and look forward to seeing Uncle Quasi again. He creates in us all the wonderful feeling of relation........and how lucky we are to know our Scots cousins.
: God speed, and get your mind set for our discussion,
: ThreeTales, Scout of the Grenadiers

LoneWolf has delivered your message, and he awaits my reply, as I, too, deem it important. Lady Elaine did not have the complete story last night, but has it now...
Do not worry yourself about the Ft. Freeland incident...t'was an error in navigation and not of intent, I assure you. It involved Wallowing Cow, and was compounded by too much rum. No harm was done, other than my embarrassment, and no more has been thought of it. Indeed, it was quite humorous, when I think of it now! I will share it with you...and you will also laugh! You would have known it then, had you not been in a rum-induced stupor of your own, dear Cousin! And as you know, I have sworn off the rum since then...and no more errors in navigation have occurred!
I, too, am anxious to be with you all again, and it will be SOON! Quasi is as excited as a young child on his first trip in a canoe! We are making great progress on our journey. There are many travellers on the road today, and I have seen some old friends who have heard of my ordeal and are wishing me well in my recovery from my injuries. My legs and back are nearly totally healed, but my head still gives me problems from time to time. My vision is blurred at a distance, and sometimes I see two images when I should see only one. But that, too will pass, I am told by the Surgeon at Carlisle.
Pax Aye, my dear Cousin! and FTD!!
