"We will welcome your company, Miss Chappel. You don't need to stay a distance from us." He turned to his aide. "Escort the young lady to the doctor's wagon." He turned back to Addy. "You'll fall in line behind the doctor's wagon. He'll keep an eye on you. Any problems, do not hesitate to call me." He tipped his hat to her, then rode off.
Lieutenant Farley, the aide, looked at Addy. "Ma'am, if you'll follow me, I'll show you where the doctor is." He tipped his hat, and started slowly riding away, waiting for her.
When Brittles got back to his place, he called for Sgt Braumann. When he arrived, "Sergeant Braumann. A lady will be traveling with us. She will be traveling with the doctor's wagon. I want you to tell the men, she is not to be molested. Anyone, anyone sergeant, who accosts her will be shot. Understand?"
