Magic Ink V, Chapters 39 & 40

The new chapters have been sent to the Moderators for posting.

This weeks chapters open with Thomas Young, Ken, Kell, and their Wives transferring to Savannah Georgia. Thomas's contact there is a woman who grows and sells herbs. She recommends a beached Sea Captain who knows what has arrived and where it is stored. She arranges for them to meet him. Captain Billy tells them what he knows.

The herb lady suggests that they ride with the manure collector to check out the warehouses. While riding with him, Ken and Kell learn some interesting facts.

On returning to Hickory Hill, there is a discussion on what they have learned. The following day, Ken and Kell arrange to take the Charles Town and Savannah teams to their ports to check out the warehouses and meet their contacts.

On Monday morning, they go to Manchester Virginia to check the warehouses near Richmond. Thomas reveals some interesting facts along the way.

That afternoon, they prepare to meet Thomas's contact in the middle colonies. He lives in the village of Towsontown outside of Baltimore. Kell reveals some interesting information about Towson in their reality.

Historic Note:
All of the locations mentioned in these chapters actually exist or existed at the turn of the 18th century.

Enjoy these chapters. More next week as there are still many more chapters to this story.

Keep Well,
