Tail Braddock's patrol.
13 July 1754
- Benjamin: Johnson's told me what you intend. As it happens, the man who held me is the same one that you seek. His name is Silas Thatcher.
- Charles: That fancy lad is our slaver?
- Benjamin: Don't let his velvet tongue deceive you. A crueler and more vicious creature, I've never known.
- Haytham: What can you tell me of his operation?
- Benjamin: He hosts at least a hundred men, more than half of whom are Redcoats.
- Haytham: All this for some slaves?
- Benjamin: Hardly. The man's a commander in the King's Troop, in charge of the Southgate Fort.
- Haytham: We need to find a way inside... Hmmm... Let me think on it. In the meantime, I'll attend to our final recruit.
- Charles: John Pitcairn's our man. I'll take you to him.
Haytham and Charles went to the military district.
- Redcoat: State your business.
- Charles: New recruit.
- Redcoat: More kindling for the pyre, eh? Go on, then.
- Haytham: How'd you manage that?
- Charles: Did you forget, sir? My commission is with General Braddock - when I'm not attending to you, of course.
Charles and Haytham came upon Braddock and Pitcairn.
- Braddock: Pitcairn, you fool! Your acts are treacherous. Give me one good reason I shouldn't kill you right now. Were you planning to announce yourself? Or did you hope my men wouldn't notice your arrival?
- John: Sir, if you'll allow me to explain...
- Braddock: Oh, by all means. I should like very much to hear this.
- John: I have not deserted, sir. I am here under Commander Amherst's orders.
- Braddock: Show me a letter bearing his seal and you might be spared the gallows.
- John: I have no such thing... The nature of my work, sir... it's...
Haytham decided to interrupt.
- Haytham: ...It's the sort of thing best not put to paper.
- Braddock: Haytham.
- Haytham: General Braddock.
- Braddock: I suppose I shouldn't be surprised. Wolves often travel in packs.
- Haytham: Master Pitcairn won't be here for but a few weeks. I shall return him to his proper post once our work is finished.
- Braddock: The Devil's work no doubt. It's bad enough my superiors insisted I grant you use of Charles. But they've said nothing about this traitor. You'll not have him.
- Haytham: Edward, listen to reason.
- Braddock: We're done here. See these gentlemen out.
Haytham and Charles were removed from the military district by Braddock's soldiers.
- Charles: Well that didn't go as I expected.
- Haytham: And to think, I used to call him brother...
- Charles: What now? They'll chase us off if we try and return.
- Haytham: We're done with the camp. And as luck would have it, so are they. Come along.
Charles and Haytham followed a small patrol of men, including Braddock.
- Charles: What are you planning?
- Haytham: To steal Master Pitcairn.
- Charles: What?
- Haytham: You'll see. Now, when I give the signal, you're to distract Braddock's patrol and lure them into a dead end.
Haytham and Charles followed the patrol for several blocks.
- Braddock: Hmmm. Where shall we head next?
- Redcoat: Perhaps down Marlborough?
- Braddock: No... its residents are too content. Their homes are nice - their days untroubled.
- Redcoat: What of Lyn or Ship Street?
- Braddock: Yes. Those fresh arrived are often soon in dire straits. They're more likely to seize upon an opportunity to fatten their purses and feed their young.
- Haytham: Now!
Charles disguised himself and ran up to General Braddock.
- Charles: Oi! You're thieves and scoundrels one and all! Fie on you and your false war!
Charles threw horse manure at Braddock and ran away.
- Braddock: After him!
Braddock eventually caught up to Charles.
- Haytham: Unhand him, Edward!
- Braddock: You again.
- Haytham: Let us go - and John Pitcairn with us.
- Braddock: I will not have my authority challenged.
- Haytham: Nor I.
- Braddock: Put them all in chains.
A fight then ensued, and Haytham and his allies killed all the redcoats, with the exception of General Braddock.
- Haytham: I stay my hand today because you were once my brother - and a better man than this. But should our paths ever cross again, all debts will be forgotten. You're free now, John.
- Braddock: Traitor! Go on then! Join them on their fool's errand! And when you find yourself lying broken and dying at the bottom of -
Pitcairn ignored Braddock and spoke to Haytham.
- John: I assume you've good reason for causing all this madness? What is it you require of me?
- Haytham: I'll explain everything on the way...
Haytham recruited the last name on his list, and was finally ready to start his infiltration of Silas Thatcher's fort.
