Stop and Jots
I think that it was fun. I liked learning about the militia and all the different ways to use the weapons it was cool because he had real weapons. I also like the British Grenadier. I thought it was cool learning about the different stances. I didn't like the surveyor that much because it was boring and confusing. I didn't get the different measurements and stuff.

David Farnsworth's Museum Letter
From David Farnsworth
Greetings and Salutations Good King,
Hello, my name is David Farnsworth I have successfully infiltrated the currency system and I have shoved £200,000 into circulation and £100,000 are ready to go whenever you give the word. John Blair, my partner has also shoved a considerable amount of money. (not as much as me) As you should know the rumors about my tuning to “patriotism” are completely false. My duties are to you and the British Parliament only. If this keeps up we will have caused economic disaster. The Americans will not be able to fund the war and we will crush everyone and you will be victorious. Perhaps we will discuss my reward soon. Maybe you could get me into the parliament and then I could be King instead of you and never mind. You don’t need to pay attention to that I messed up. It was sloppy and non-important. You don’t need to know what it was. Okay, as you might not know George Washington has become personally interested in my plot because I am so good and I am only eighteen. He realizes I have potential and if this keeps up you will win. Can you at least give me some bodyguards so that I don’t get hanged. That would be painful and then you will have lost your best counterfeiter. See? It benefits you as well. There is talk of the “patriots” changing currency to something new. But even if they do it is only a matter of time before I can counterfeit that as well. Since George Washington is onto me I have to move often. I have a drum that I carry all of my stuff in. I use this because I was a drummer in the battle of Bunker Hill and Cambridge. It is also very easy to hold because it goes around my neck. In it I also keep a bag of counterfeit plates and money so I know how the real thing looks and how to replicate it. My other artifact is a noose. I know the penalty from being on your side and for being a counterfeiter is hanging. I dread this and the noose reminds to keep going and never stop being on the move. Well. Whatever. Just hurry up and win the war so I will never have to see another noose again.
David Farnsworth wanted to be King and he wanted the loyalists to win the war but King George was King and the Patriots were looking for him. So he became a counterfeiter and he tried to get King George off the throne but it didn't work.
