    I dun tolt Liberty an Josh bout Brice Dixon, an bout Rachel, were kind lost in thots after that. Lib need to heer that story, an I rekon Josh did too. gave Liberty a winch scatter, its heavy nough to use as a club ifn she wants. The Padray found the snake I put in his sadelbags. Charly tolt the the lot of em the I aint never groed up. Only he calt me J.T. When he did that Liberty got a werd look and druged off Josh. Recon she figgured out that Jimmy an J.T. is bolth me.

Ol John kina perked up an got lifelike when she mentioned her teecher. next mornin we aded a few mor to the grupe. we was sittin down to brekfes when Lib goes runnin to a fite in the street. one of the fellers in it were a frend of her’n. He gos by Lucky an keeps callin Lib Princess, but hese hellonwheels with thet axehandle he totes around. than as we wuz getin ready to leave Amanda’s brother showed up, I dont hardly remember him. we thought he had died in the qwake, and dident come round much afore that.
    when we was leeven tone a grupe cums up carryin a Iern Dragon flag an tolt Stazyleynn wut her unkal were ded. I gess thet makes her in charg of tha Iern Dragon frem whet they sayed. anyweys we got to the minin toun a bit afore the rest of them, me, Josh, John an Charly did. Joshwa thut thar mite be trubal for Lib, but he done went a kilt Nikee Ward later thet night. hope thets all thet we heer abowt her.

    ban bizy sans we gut bak ta Hells River. reel bizy. I aint sher I’ll remember everie thin or put them in the rite place sose I wote evan try. We gets back home an thar is carvins on a door fraem in Stayzilenns hows. Kevan an Mary says wut it wer a thret at killin her. they tryd to do it tu, but it wer Lib whut drank the wisky the posund. we got lib tooked kar ov an went over to the old saluun. Josh decides he wants to opan the plaes bak up an get it operating agen, so a bunch of us head out fer supleis the neks dae. We get bak an JJ is gone, Lib an Lucky is warin them red sashes thet the Coweboys doun et Tumstone war and is all bludy an smilin. whan I askt bout JJ, al tha aner I get is thet he went Eest an Lib sayin “When he tuked of thet uenyform, he louked liek a frend of mine.”thet wer anuff fer me too noe thet they dint kill him, but nothin els.
    I thnk it werte the nite whut sum uv Grims lapdawgs shoed up at Amandas hows, kaint recal fer shur. we kot wun an Lib, Luky an Charly went ta werk on hem. dint du much guud, Lib disapered in an kumd back talkin bowt bein in hell. Charly started getin figity an build himselv a swetloge abowt then.

    i rekon it wer the neks nite thet we herd a big krsh in the kichen an Staecilayn skreemin fer al gitowt. I runt in that an she ponts to a Rag whut had sum mor of thet Chinee pikter riten on it. asks us to go check JJ’s hows so me, john, an lucky went. found mor uv the pikter writin carved on a winderfraem, I see much mor of thet an I mite be able to start reedin it my oneself. I kaint reed it yet, but I ramemberd thet Tiffny cud so I wentan fecht her to reed it fer us. She gos an says thet she donet want to be calld “Tiffny” any mor, an fer us to call her “Mary”. anywaes, she kumed doun and red the pikters fer us. Sayed it wer a bunch uv threts, not jes at Staisilyenn, but at all uv us. Lucky poket around the hows an found a trap in Mrs. Dawson’s old flower bed. it were rite under a winder. them triad boys had thet plase rigd ta blo skie hie. ther wer at leest a pient uv nitroglycerin thar(I had to asx Staisielin how ta spell thet, Charly ses my spellin is tarabul).
