Connor, if you are reading this, I have failed to say goodbye as I wanted, but the time never seemed appropriate.
I leave this land and all its resources to you. I trust you now know this place has become something of great significance. A community to serve as an example of what this would-be nation could become.
But the larger and stronger it grows, the more fragile and difficult to defend it becomes. I hope your friends who are birthing this infant country understand this truth.
Your unwavering tenacity and honesty have burdened you with responsibility far greater than any one man should bear. But you, if anyone are capable. You have given an old man hope that all is not lost and for that I thank you.
I ask that you lay my bones to rest on the hill overlooking the water, there is no other place on this earth I’d rather be.
I am grateful to have met you, knowing you will guide this land and these people to a better future.
Yours in brotherhood,
