As the rear guard we were the last to go into bivouac last night. Despite the late hour I went in search of Elijah.
I arrived just as the council was closing their meeting. They had been evaluating their first day on the march. Overall it was positive. And our rear guard was commended for our diligence.
Elijah and I drew apart by ourselves. He wants me to choose someone else to take my place on the rear guard and rejoin him in the lead.
So I have kept a close eye today to that end. I would like to appoint Mawuli, but fear his youth would be a stumbling block. I asked Mawuli and he recommended the perfect candidate.
