One more thing, keep the ‘Kidd’ last name, but make it legal. ‘Randolph Kidd’ has a nice sound to it.”

The following morning Boomer, Larry and Bartholomew Nathaniel set out for Williams’ Station and Larry and Bart, for Moosehead City. Angus was there to see them off.

Ah see ye ur ready tae lae,” Angus was there to see his new friends off on their journey, “Is Doctur Shoose leavin’ tay?”

Boomer, Larry & Bart leaving townDoc is remaining to work with Doctor Templeton,” Boomer replied, as he eyed—very carefully—the authentic Kentuckey Longrifle, a flintlock, no less, hanging off Bart’s saddle, “THAT is an impressive rifle, Bart.”

Nathaniel smiled, “That was my great-grandfather’s rifle, he served with General Daniel Morgan throughout the Revolution as an original member of Morgan’s Rifles.”

Dae ye hink Doc Shoose can help ‘at worthless auld Doc Templeton?” Angus said with a laugh, he and Templeton were very-old friends—always needling one-another.

Doc sent a telegraph message this morning to Doctor Tim McLean,” Larry replied, “He is a wizard at treating wounds and preventing infections. He’ll be arriving tomorrow or the next day.”

Ah, that’s guid,” Angus replied, “Templton is a guud mon an’ hates losin’ friends tae infection. Hae a safe joorney haem. Ah will be watchin’ Mr. Kidd verra closely as ye suggested, lads.”

    Curious it is that all the exterior door handles are on the right side. IRL methinks the majority are on the left.

      Another individual with some familiarity with the English language might have worded that: “A moment of contrarian observation.” A moment of observation by #TheCurmudgeon™. 😛
