The captain’s eyes widened as he stared off across the cabin. Then suddenly he turned…
“Yoo’re free tae gang. Git doon thaur an' dae aw 'att ye can!”
Och thenk ye Sairrr! Ahh wont’ lit ye doon!” Errisl said with a beaming smile as she saluted.
“Don’t lit th' Commander doon Errisl…”The Captain replied solumnely.

“Bat’s arse mucker! Those ur focking forcepts, nae a clamp!” Hack’s irritated voice rang out.
Errisl knocked once and then opened the door. Hack looked up quickly…
“Och- thenk Gawd!”

[On the Silverton...sick bay...]
Cockpit Mate Andofzara and Seaman Nealfa were noticeably relieved when Warrant Officer Errislravenhill came in and put on her surgery gown. With a nod of her head, she relieved them of any further duty.
“Sairrr!” “Aye, Sairrr!” They both acknowledged with a quick salute before shedding their masks and blood-spattered gowns and heading for the door.
“Yoo’re a sight fur sore een Errisl!” Warrant Officer Hack said behind his mask, “Ur ye sure yoo’re up tae it?”
“Ahh am, an' let’s git tae it! Hand me those clamps an' let’s shut doon thes bleedin'...”
[Out in the hallway…]
“Aw due respect Sairrr, Ahh’m mighty glad tae be oot of thaur!” Seaman Nealfa said as he quickened his pace to keep up with the Cockpit Mate.
“Aye, an' me tay mucker! Me tay…” Andofzara answered.
Suddenly at the galley stairs, they ran into the captain who was heading towards sick bay. Stopping with a quick salute they addressed him…
“At yer ease. What’s th' situation wi' th' Commander?” The captain asked with a deep expression of concern on his face.
“Weel Sairrr, Officer Errislravenhill jist relieved us, an' froms whit Ahh coods teel, th' Commander was hangin' oan weel...” Andofzara replied.
“Hangin’ oan...?” The captain repeated as he stared off down the hallway, his mind moving a hundred miles an hour, “Ahh’ll nae interrupt them. Be oan yer ways men.”
[Fort Kingston…north shore, Lake Ontario…]
The three Iroquois canoes slid quietly up to the main dock as a group of French soldiers gathered above.
"Jetez-nous une ligne!" First Mate Louis called out as he steadied himself.
A rope ladder was quickly flung over the side of the dock as Louis quickly climbed his way up, followed by a steady stream of his ship mates. Standing above and breathing heavily, he nodded farewell to the lead Iroquois Indian and the canoes quickly back-paddled away from the dock and turned off towards the south-east, disappearing into the night.
“I am First Mate of the Corvette La Serpent! I demand to speak to the governor!” (Translated) Louis ordered.
