Prickett's Fort & Spring!

was glancing up the hollow a few days past and realized the skeletal limbs of the trees were cloaked in a hazy fog of green. Flowers have also begun to spring forth from the ground, heralding the coming of a warmer season.

The tree in front of my home has also begun to sprout its evidence of the season. Bright green shoots are beginning to issue forth.

I have been preparing for my journey to travel up to Prickett's Fort upon ye request of mr. Wm. Schneider. Pricketts Fort, as I understand it, can be found where Pricketts Creek joins the Monongahela River in the foothills of the Allegheny Mountains. According to the initial letter from mr. Schneider, Prickett's would seem to suffer from continued violence along the border with the Shawnee.

My Molly will be traveling with me to the fort upon this occasion. She is very excited that she will have me all to herself. She is also quite excited to learn hat there is a 'fort cat' at Prickett's.
