1.31 The Morristown Story
The plague has struck in Morristown- keep away! Newcomers are turned away. But not Hawkeye and Chingachgook, who are in pursuit of Simon Girty, an outlaw on the run.
Girty has in fact taken over the town, scaring townsfolk, "standing up to him might cost some of our lives." Hawkeye and Chingachgook sneak into town and after a bout of fisticuffs meet settler John Audley, whose wife gives them food.
Hawkeye and Chingachgook track Girty to the cabin where he is staying and take him prisoner. But the settlers refuse to allow Girty to be taken away. The fact is, Girty's men have taken Audley's son and other settlers' children hostage. An exchange has to be agreed, and it is Hawkeye and Chingachgook who end up the prisoners.
Mrs Audley kindly brings Hawkeye and Chingachgook their last meal, as their hands are tied, she has to feed them. After this comedy interlude, their guard is hoodwinked and knocked out by no less than Mrs Audley.
Freed, Hawkeye tricks Girty into believing Chingachgook has the plague. Certainly Chingachgook has nasty looking spots and he totters and collapses. Girty's "lily livered men" scram and Girty is given some deserved punches before the children are all released
