Just the Outlander chapter

The chapter starts with William asking around to find out if people have seen Lord John Grey. It’s two days later and Amaranthus spots a locked up bottle of alcohol. She wonders if it is poison considering a conversation she and Hal had about foxgloves. Could Hal have been considering suicide?

William isn’t sure about that, but he does need to find his uncle. So, he heads out to Charles Town, which is where Hal was going. When William gets there, Hal is no longer around. Denys Randall shares that Hal was heading north. That suggests Hal is going to Ben.

Great, so William heads back to Savannah to update Amaranthus. The only good thing is that Hal doesn’t have the potential bottle of poison, so he’s not going to kill his son or himself.

Amaranthus shares that a letter arrived for Hal from Richardson. It’s the letter we know that Richardson was going to send. Richardson is trying to prevent Hal from speaking to the House of Lords. It looks like Hal has a few other plans anyway.

The good thing about the letter is that William now knows what happened to John. He needs to get his father out of trouble.
