Translation:

Lieutenant Jensen,

I’m sad to report that one of the Warriors of Light has passed on to the other side.
My liaison with Beuford Farnsworth ended abruptly. He’s been fighting against the forces of Satan for a long time, and the beasts of Hell caught up with him just after he gave me a package to deliver to one of his contacts in Silver City.
A half dozen other people Beuford helped along the way met with him, and were all tasked with helping me deliver the package. For my report, I will briefly describe my traveling companions.

Alphonse Moreau Jr – Teenage Agent for the ConFeds. I do not trust most words he says, but he seems reliable in The Fight.
Dakota Evans – Youthful Witch. She has BF’s vote of confidence, so I’ll reserve judgment.
Deuteronomy Dan – Huckster. He has BF’s vote of confidence, so I’ll reserve judgment.
Preacher – Danite and violent vigilante. He seems to play fast and loose with the law, so I will keep an eye on him. He did join in with a Revival, so he may be trying to atone for his sins, too.
Rain aka Raining Wind – Black Injun Woman. She seems to avoid civilization, principally to avoid racism. Very skilled, I may request a deputization in the future for her.

In order to reach Silver City before the snows close all of the passes, we ran a few bounties. This took about a week, and we will make our way on the train soon.

Bounty Report: Murder of 3 vigilantes, with 3 more brought to Helena. Bank robbery funds recovered, bounty paid out of it.

Progress Report on The Fight: Tension localized in Helena and Butte.

Revival completed in Helena, with plans of future attention by Rangers if possible.
Underlying cause: Not found

Revival completed in Butte by Dan.
Underlying cause: Sin’s Tempest; has not been remedied.
Terminated: 1 Helstromme Automaton.

Sergeant Marsh.

Subscript for Posterity: This Rockwell Ranger is a contradiction. He has great reading comprehension and reads every day, but his spelling and penmanship show he spent no time in school after the third grade. His physique shows he was definitely working with his father in the mines since before that. Though his youth was spent in small groups, one-on-one situations, his speaking is understandable and he can put towns at ease with a speech. These things rarely go together, but for the strange role his religion plays in his life. If we are to take him, we will need continued observation to find a pressure point.

I got tired of changing the writing, so future logs will be translated to regular English. If the Marshall wants more strings to pull, there’s one there
