Chapter 21 Summary

On his deathbed, Hutter reveals that he is not the biological father of Judith and Hetty. The group from the ark returns to the Castle. Harry is regretful about his own attempts to scalp the Iroquois now that he sees Hutter's scalped head. After Hutter dies, the group takes his dead body out to the center of the lake and sinks it near where Hutter had sunk the body of his dead wife two years earlier.

Harry takes Judith aside and proposes to her. She refuses because she loves Deerslayer. She suggests that Harry go and inform the local garrison about the location of the Iroquois and bring back soldiers to help rescue Deerslayer. She mentions a Captain Warley, who she wishes to avoid seeing. It is assumed that she once had a romantic relationship with him.
