25 February 1812 – Robinette Merchant Docks For the past 24 hours, the activity around Captain Griffen’s ship the Firebird has been frenetic. Foodstuffs and water are hastily being stowed. Gunpowder charges and cannon shot are arriving and carefully being place in the fore and aft magazines. Crew is arriving with seabags. Interestingly, the crew members are older than usual and there is a lot of smiles, hugs and slaps on the back as crew members see each other. Two mysterious passengers arrive in long cloaks and disappear below decks. By early afternoon, Captain Griffen, his son and their lynxes arrive with a couple of trunks which are stowed in the Captain’s cabin. They are the last to arrive. Captain Griffen surveys the ship, and nods satisfied. He turns to a woman in an officer’s uniform. “Grace, take us out and gather the officers for a meeting in the conference room as soon as we cast off”. Captain Griffen, his son and their lynxes go below. After the Firebird is moving down the Thames, the officers disappear below. They come back topside with grim expressions on their faces, and they disperse, talking to groups of crew members who also become upset. Captain Griffen and his son come topside and walk to the quarterdeck. He looks at the crew and says. “So now you know. Let’s be about it. Loose jibs and topgallants, if you please. Oliver, please make sure all stans’ls are in working order for the open sea." Captain Griffen stands next to the helmsman, holding his sleeping son and staring off into the distance as the Firebird picks up speed while moving down the Thames towards the ocean.

(With permission from Captain Katharine Sunderlin's actor) A quarter hour prior to the wedding ceremony, a carriage with the Sunderlin crest pulls up to Maison Paonne-Renarde. As the carriage stops and a footman opens the door, Alexander pops out of the carriage looking for his very good friend, Gavroche. A smiling Captain Abraham Griffen steps out next, turning to accept a white basket carrying their newborn daughter Ingary from inside the carriage. He offers his other hand to a figure inside the carriage, and out steps his wife, Captain Katharine Sunderlin, in a fine wool gown of forest green. With Alexander holding her right hand, and Abraham holding her left, the family happily walks into Maison Paonne Renarde for the wedding and the reception. Abraham, Katharine, Alexander and baby Ingary sat to the rear of the small group of witnesses to keep the attention on Lady de Beauchamp and Miss Buxton. At the conclusion of the beautiful ceremony as the married couple was introduced to witnesses, Tabby saw Katharine. In shock, she stopped what she was doing, then ran crying to Katharine and hugged her hard. Abraham introduced his wife to Eleanor. Abraham and family then went to the reception, and he introduced Katharine to his cousin, Lady Lucy Beaumont, who greeted her warmly and welcomed her to the family. Ingary was fussed over as is the case with all newborns. Abraham then escorted the family over to meet their neighbors in Cornwall and new client ,the Boscawen family, introducing the family to Caroline and her fiance Betsey. At that time, Captain Viscount Blackmore enthusiastically greeted Katharine. (From Captain Sunderlin’s actor with her permission) Katharine is distant and quiet for the most part, as if she cannot quite believe she is really here. She greets the people Abraham introduces her to, but softly and without much to say. But when she sees Captain Blackmore her white features light up like the winter sun coming out from behind a particularly distant cloud. "Jack," she says, "my Jack!" and embraces him fiercely if he allows her to. "My dear, my dear friend." There is much and more to say, but not here. "Come by the house," she tells him, holding his hand tightly with both of hers. She has not felt this alive, this clear, in a long time. "Please. And the ball, in April, I shall be there. Abraham cannot go, but I shall, and I hope to see you there."* With a brief introduction of Ingary and Lady Beaumont to the Captain Viscount, Abraham smiled and drew the family and Lady Beaumont back to their table to give the two Captains space to catch up. Lady Beaumont and Abraham spoke for some time before she left the table to converse with Lady Camilla Davenport. Throughout the reception Abraham showed off his children, introduced his wife to those that did not know her and lovingly paid attention to his children and Captain Sunderlin.
