Allen Jabour with his flock (Bernard Ackeley, Ed Green, Nathan Green, Henry Noyes, Anne Wilmarth)
The majority of the posse spent Friday assisting Oliver in organizing the townsfolk. The poor townspeople were still not well, but could assist in simple tasks. Some were assigned laundry duty. Others helped to cook the town meals. Many more were tasked with a general cleaning of the town’s buildings. All were required to bathe.
While this work went on, Sterling spent several hours repairing Hildegarde and Jonah gathered a few simple supplies from the general store and saloon. (He wasn’t sure where he would be heading next, but knew he would need to create some new bottles of “Doc Jonah’s Miracle Cure” to sell.)
