Just the Outlander chapter
The chapter starts with Roger trying to put handles on a barrel that is going to hide the gold. Jamie comes just in time to help with that, and he brings some sauerkraut. The sauerkraut smell mixes with the smell of the fish that was left behind in the barrel.
Jamie commends Roger on building the secret compartment. However, Roger will need to check the barrel regularly to make sure everything is still in place.
This then leads to Jamie’s request. He would like Roger to look out a man called Francis Marion, who is also known as The Swamp Fox. Marion is a Rebel and may be able to help Jamie learn more about the officers in the Continental Army. There are certain officers that Jamie would like some advise on.
How does Jamie know about The Swamp Fox? Well, it turns out that he has been reading Frank’s book. Now Jamie wants to know if Frank can be trusted with the information he wrote down. While Roger wouldn’t be able to say anything about Frank’s character with never knowing him, he knows historians. There is no way Frank could lie about something in history. Other historians would have called him out for that, so the information about The Swamp Fox is right.
