|In Chapter 6, however, we don't know about the militia

in consequence of the missive, Militia + Lucases, penned by Therese
So when we get to the end of Chapter 6 we are in the dark about Col Forster and these other officers. They could all be local men on leave from the regulars, or members of the militia, or retired, I suppose.
I was just thinking about how a first time reader might view this information about newly named men if they assumed, as I do for my focus, that the novel is really about single men w/ money who need to get married. :-)
