Gee, It's been a while since I was on a farm hope they smell better after 10 years.
I vote for farm.

Mr. Harding, Mrs Harding, Mr Daly, welcome to the doomed beautiful town of Alabatha.  You couldn't have come at a worse time.  

Before we move on to the Farm, there are a few questions I'd like answered or clarified.  

Did anyone bother to check the Hotel registry while you were there?  Don't you think we should find out who this "Ted" is and see who rented the 2nd floor room?  I have a very bad feeling that the bloodstain on the third floor was this "Ted".  The blood had fully dried, right?  So the stain was at least a day or two old before "we" got there.  

When you were in the third floor room in the hotel, was the broken glass inside the room or out on the street?  Everyone assumed the red was breaking out of the room, but I suspect that he was breaking in, to remove some evidence before you could get to it.  Would he really have needed a rock from the beach to break the window if he was inside?  Also, what side of the hotel was the ladder on, and was it there before you went into the hotel?  If you remember, I wasn't there at the time, thanks to our friendly neighborhood CIA agent.  

Also, someone should check to see if the broken window was locked.  Better yet, at least three people should check.  Safety in numbers.  Did anyone bother to check under the beds in the Hotel?

Dieter, yesterday you were saying something about being in a tunnel.  Where were you when you found the tunnel?  How did you get in?  Where did it lead to?  

Did anyone bother to open the crate that was floating in the water near the lighthouse?  

Does the name Harborside Boats mean anything to me?

I'd like to see the three notes that you found at the Hotel.  Are they written in the same handwriting?

There is the secret tunnel we are all but certain is in the Town Hall basement.  Shouldn't we find that first?  I don't care if we finish searching the upper floors or not, but I think knowing where the tunnel entrance is will be important.  

One last thing, I'd like to fill in the newcomers on everything we know from the first three chapters.

Captain Harding, is the Lakota registered as an American vessel or does it sail under a foreign flag?  Would you mind showing us the ship's manifest?  I don't think a full search of the vessel is warrented right now.  Besides, it would take far to long to fully search a cargo ship.  I would ask that the ship be locked down if possible, and that no cargo be transferred on or off of the ship.  I doubt there are any dockworkers left around to do that work anyway.  And James is too busy with us.

The name Harborside Boats does not mean anything to you. They are all written in the same handwriting. Mayor Bradford then fills in the newcomers on what has happened.

The townsfolk head for the Simmons' Farm.

"Shouldn't you have a warrant or somethin'?" Farmer Simmons asks.

However, the fear of the increasing mob outside persuades him to let the people head inside and search his farm.

Is the note from your CIA friend, congressman?  Is he paranoid or does he have some information he's keeping from us?  It'd be nice if the guy could actually, you know, help us catch commies instead of plotting our deaths.

As I should know this ahead of time, I'd like to know if any in our group worked on my election campaign.

I just thought of something.  Captain Harding, you don't frequent this town often, do you?  Do you happen to stay at the Alabatha Hotel, perhaps on the third floor?  If you do, you mighht want to reconsider.  It's not as clean a room as it used to be, and it's sort of drafty now.  

I'd like to ask Patrick Jefferson and the police officers who investigated the late Mrs. Jefferson's death.

Hmmm.  So we're not to trust the newcomers.  I'm going to take that quite literally.  I'd like to ask each member of our group to relate how long they have lived in Alabatha.  I am going to start by giving my own story.

You know how on farms, there is the big red building?

If there is a big red farm, I would like to search through it, specifically if there is something hidden in the hay stacks.


And for those wondering, I have not got a hotel room yet.

There's a field of crops in one area, the farm house in another, a few produce trees in the back, and then the abandoned Alabatha General Store all the way in the back. He then looks under the patio, but there's nothing there.

Who is Mr. Warrent and why does the farmer want us to wait for him before searching his farm? The captain said he is in the constitution's 4th amendment so he must be important.

I would like to know what kind of crops are growing and if they are tall enough or thick enough to hide something in.

Also, I would like to know what kind of animals are on the farm and ask the farmer if he has seen anything suspicious recently.

Should Mr. Warrent come with us? He seems like a very important man since everyone wants to see him.

I would like to glance back and see if the corn stalks are tall enough to have something hidden in them.
Also, if it is a dirt road I would like to look for any unusual footprints or tire tracks in the dirt.
