Clara Duran's Notes 3/78
- Fort Defiance: The note is on a dresser in a patient bedroom on the second floor, next to the northeastern administrative nurse room.
Our group was attacked by desperate folks who weren't interested in trading with or joining our collective.
Such senseless violence! They killed Bertha, even though I showed them that she was a milk cow, and all the egg laying chickens too.
Half the remaining group left for Monongah, saying that they couldn't continue to "carry" the survivors from Watoga. They warned us not to follow.
Those of us who are left are abandoning Allegheny tomorrow. The people who attacked us will just be back for more eventually. I think they're from that little town north of Watoga where I bought preserves and antiques.
So, we're going to try to find survivors up north near Harpers Ferry. It's a long walk, but hopefully we can find other good people or just avoid the bad ones.
