Subject: RE: TAVERN STEAMBOAT- Albert Hansell Part 3
Mojo Woman put her arm around the stout figure of Mary Greene, standing on the promenade deck midhips watching the charade. "Those Herons did a pretty good job of keeping up the show", she remarked. "That imposter over there looks a lot like you, only uglier."

Big Mary Greene smiled ruefully, knowing that forces larger than she could deal with were about to cost her her beloved Maid, but that there was no other choice.

She reached in her cartridge case and touched the vellum paper there thoughtfully.

"'S far as i kin tell now, Mojo, we got all the Catters here wit us on the albert. An' they got all them Red herons ovah theh on the Maid. 'Lessn ol' Leej is still usin' both sides of his mouth at once. But I think he's tellin' the truth about his plan."
