At last, you, the reader, will discover Squire John Ferrour’s experiences in his adopted country, England, being a natural born Frenchman. You will recall how he entered into our story during the unauthorised raid into the Cite of Limoges by the miners led by Captain Tyler. In the course of liberating their Gascon compatriots and recovering the Coucy Treasure Tyler’s raiders came upon two French lords plus a certain scribe who that very night had shared his lords’ sleeping quarters. This scribe was of course |Monsieur Jean Ferrure. Whereas his noble friends were safe on account of their ransom value Monsieur’s hide was spared after offering to pen the raiders’ ransom letters to the nobles’ respective families. After all it was the reason he was in the lords’ cell in the first place though his missive had to do with a marriage document.
