Chapter 24 Summary

Deerslayer and Judith examine the contents of the chest, looking for clues about the real father of the girls. They find a collection of letters. Some are written from a mother to a daughter, the daughter presumably being Judith's mother. The others come from suitors. Judith learns that her mother had a relationship with a man that resulted in the births of herself and Hetty. Then she married Thomas Hovey, the real name of Thomas Hutter, who had been a pirate.

The conversation turns to marriage as Judith seeks to show Deerslayer that she wants to marry him.
