Magic Ink V, Chapters 53 & 54

The new chapters have been sent to the Moderators.

This week's chapters close out a number of details and open with a meeting at Hickory Hill. Mark and Seamus explain what occurred on their trip that day to the Statesboro area in the Third Reality.

The next morning they all transport to Albert's house and find trouble. After a time they move to the plantation house to confront the men there. They want to fight and are soon removed. Albert is rescued and the area searched.

Later a number of local farmers arrive to determine what happened. Mark speaks to them and sets up a meeting for the following day. Afterward the house and buildings are searched.

At the meeting the next day, Mark, Seamus, Ken, and Kell explain where they are from and what they have done. Following a lunch, Mark explains about the crops and what they propose for the future.

The O'Connells are still busy with overseeing the British withdrawal. Mark begins their removal from the Border Rangers also. Chandra and Duncan go to reclaim their farm in northwest Georgia in July accompanied by Seamus, Amelia and Annan. They are all married before returning.

Surprises arrive in August when a number of the O'Connells learn that they have been elected to the Confederation Congress. There is a meeting with President Jefferson.

Change of Command for the Border Rangers occurs on the morning of the First of September. At noon that day the Congress starts its new session. The O'Connell women are not well received by some of the representatives but are seated. Gwyn, Glanda, and John are appointed to the Commission sent to speak to the holdout colonies about joining the Confederation.

Hickory Hill is returned to the government on the 14th of September. Many other details are taken care of before this.

Enjoy these two chapters. More adventures with James next week.

Keep Well,
