A Conspiracy is Afoot TSP Week 11

The Scottish Prisoner Podcast Series 

Chapters 21 and 22

Week 11

John and Jamie decide “A Conspiracy is Afoot,” after Jamie returns bruised and telling John of Siverly trying to kill him after reading the poem. Another Jacobite rebellion is exactly what the poem references.

Tom decides Jamie’s injuries need to be treated with a poultice. His shoulder and left buttock are severely bruised. Through my own research, I learned an onion poultice would not be the best to treat such a condition, however, there are several options that would.

When John goes to call on Major Siverly the next day, he gets quite a surprise when he finds Edward Twelvetrees to be in Siverly’s company. He discovers a large amount of money being readied for distribution to several people. John manages to infuriate both of the men before his visit is finished. In no uncertain terms, Twelvetrees threatens John if he chooses to pursue whatever he is after. It looks like the Duchess of Pardloe’s attempts to keep John and Twelvetrees away from each other has failed miserably. It’s time for plan b. What will John and Jamie do next?

The ’45

The Starz Outlander newsletter dropped into my inbox today highlighting the ’45 Jacobite uprising.


A history lesson mixed with cast member thoughts, this newsletter is quite informative and rich. I encourage you to research and study more if you haven’t already. This time period was extraordinarily pivotal in the history and for ever after future of the Scottish peoples, most notably those called Highlanders.



I dare anyone not to be deeply moved by the events and loss of so much along with the lives tragically lost at Culloden that fateful day.

I have always been very impressed by Diana Gabaldon’s research into the historical aspects of her colorful writing.
