To the HMS Allegiance: Man overboard.

That aside, I assume even from my gross lack of experience with the country that this is not New South Wales.

If it is, that certainly puts me in a queer predicament; though given that it is certainly not England, I suppose I am, any road. How far from the colony were you?

And I was yet in Dover. Whatever they've been at in Botany Bay, I dare say it has not involved this much metallurgy.

Not among the Corps, though I would not be surprised to hear of desertions elsewhere; and nothing of this nature. Did the Allegiance mislay any men before your own disappearance?

That is a difficulty; but if it means Iskierka is any less likely to do herself and Granby a mischief, then so be it.

At any rate, we are no closer to an explanation why the both of us are here. Are you within that building or without?

We will have enough to deal with in the coming weeks without Iskierka getting herself into further scrapes. You may have her, for now.

I shall come in, then; if we are the only two who have been marooned in this fashion, we would be a sight better off to communicate in person.
