Empty baskets, if you must know! We delivered food to the monastery last evening! My concern is what you might be taking out. SHe’s right, Captain. They’re clean. I don’t pretend to know what these reprobates will do, Phineas.

Where did you get it? Drake… …How do you know it belongs to Greyfalcon? Know anyone else who builds machines like the ones in here? You know him? Yes. A harsh man. It can’t be… Greyfalcon…! Our thieves show up in the very same place Greyfalcon does? Here, of all places? When was he here? And why? Was he hurt? A while ago. Three moons at least. And not hurt. He wanted to see the pigeons.
