Fawcett's Last Letter Edit
My dear Nina,
Once again, the attempt to write is fraught with difficulty. However, those flies and bees and bugs galore that I wrote of before, all of those pinhead-sized stinging horrors, would have been a welcomed attrition now that I have faced tooth and claw. I fought bravely, but the confrontation did not go in my favor. I will spare you the details out of compassion, and not egotism. My wounds have been packed with yarrow and are stable, but I can feel infection in the blood. If you are reading this then you know I have not survived this place. I instructed Jack not to go on. We lost young Rimmel a few weeks ago.
This place, Nina, is not meant for the likes of men, and I will not rob you of a son as I have a husband. I'm tired now. Jack is sleeping by the fire, and I am certain that when he awakes, I will have slipped away into my own slumber.
I love you, Nina.
Jack's Journal 6 Edit
9 August - I am leaving this page here to assuage any mystery should the rest of this quest prove as fatal for me as it has been for my party. My name is Jack Fawcett. I set out from Cuiaba, Mato Grosso on the 20th of April, 1925 with my father, Percival Harrison Fawcett, and my best and long-time friend, Raleigh Rimmel in search of Z. I am the only one left. My father was lost to a pair of fierce jungle cats and Raleigh to a blunder. I myself and worse for wear, but refuse to give up. My father believed we are close to Z and so do I. So I am leaving two graves behind me, I will push West still, with the hope that I am not walking to my own end.
