Just the Outlander chapter

This chapter starts with Jamie reading the letter from Colonel Locke. Locke shares that there was an encounter between the North Carolina and Georgia militias and some loyalist troops guarding a mill that controlled the grain supply at the river. It turns out that Ferguson is getting at least another 300 men.

The Loyalists have lost more men so far. That doesn’t stop Ferguson attempting to raise an Army and he could succeed.

Locke needs Jamie to join with the Rowan County Militia. Locke makes it clear that Jamie will get to keep command of his own men, and there are benefits to joining. There’s one issue, though. It’s the Ridge. If he joins, he won’t be able to protect the Ridge.

There is the threat from Kings Mountain still. Jamie thinks of Frank’s book, remembering that Lock is going to have some success as Ramseur’s Mill and Colson’s Mill. Kings Mountain has too many Loyalists, and this puts the Ridge at risk. He needs the support of the Overmountain Men to protect the Ridge.

Jamie decides to head to Claire’s garden, but she’s not there. Instead, he thinks of a poem that she told him about, and that leads to him asking the bees to watch over Claire should something happen to him.
