Our time here is drawing to a close. We all feel it. The Captain wants it sooner rather than later, before the path westward is closed off by the completion of the army base.

I thought the idea commendable but wondered if there might be an easier way to turn up the information.
I asked Elijah about going to our neighbor to sound him out on his knowledge of the lay of the land. Certainly he has proven trustworthy.
Elijah was open to the idea, but cautioned to make no promises.
We called next door and found him gone.
