Jamie writes a letter to the Loyalists in Outlander Book 9, Chapter 113

Jamie has no choice but to evict tenants in Outlander Book 9, Chapter 113. He also needs to keep an eye on his current prisoners.

Claire had worried that Lieutenant Esterhazy was going to take Jamie captive in his own home. We learn in this chapter that it’s the opposite way around. Esterhazy is the prisoner, and Claire only just realizes.

This is a major chapter. Jamie has to do something that he really doesn’t want to. It’s a part of war, especially when people he trusted have led an uprising against him. The only way for Jamie to protect himself and his family is to evict those who were involved in the Loyalist side of the fight that night.

Claire doesn’t like it either, but she knows this has to happen. She doesn’t get much time to focus on things when Esterhazy asks for permission to go and find his potentially fallen friend. The only way that is happening is with Claire going with him.

This chapter certainly continues this whole plotline of something happening at the Ridge. We get to see how the war puts friends and neighbors against each other. I’ll get into that in the foreshadowing section.

As for the adaptation, I would like to see this chapter used. I’ll share more in the adaptation section, but you’ve already heard it from me.

Let’s dive into the Go Tell the Bees That I Am Gone chapter.
