Just the Outlander chapter
The chapter starts with the Murrays parting ways with Jamie. He gives Jenny a pistol with some gunpowder, which concerns Rachel. Jenny promises that she will only use it if absolutely necessary, but it’s Ian who has to keep the peace. He makes it clear that Rachel will talk any villains into a stupor before the pistol has to be used.
Rachel puts on a brave face when Jamie wishes them goodbye. As they are on their way north, Oggy and Jenny fall asleep, and it gives Rachel a chance to ask about the dead man. This is when Young Ian shares everything that happened to Claire and shares that the man is now dead. He just doesn’t say how, and Rachel just assumes that the man died because of God. Ian has to remember to tell Jenny not to bring anything about the man up to Rachel.
As for Jamie, he pulls out the shopping list that Claire gave to him and adds some of his own items. He almost knocks into Constable Jones, who asks Jamie about the dead man. Something the constable wants to know is whether Jamie thinks the dead man was a Jew. There was a letter written in Hebrew that makes him wonder this.
Jamie takes a look at the letter. Sure enough, it is Hebrew. It’s signed “Ambidextrous,” which Jamie finds concerning.
Jamie ends up telling the constable to look at the man’s private parts to tell if he’s a Jew or not, explaining why that’s the case. Jamie needs to get his shopping done and get out as soon as possible.
