????? Did she say why?
She's ok with us digging through the whole estate, she's ok with us putting up a museum exhibit, but she doesn't want a book? Does she not trust us to do it justice, or something?

She wants the documents and artifacts to speak for themselves. Sorry, Ben, but I think the most you'll legally get to write about the Madigan Estate are the description placards when the exhibit goes up. 
Look, please try and be sensitive about this. It's her family, her history. If she doesn't want some thrill-seeking travel writer exploiting her massive family trauma, we need to respect that.

Right. "Legally." 
No, I get it. I guess it makes sense, and I want her to trust us. Maybe she'll change her mind later, though? I'm still going to write up everything I find out. I need to copy out the documents anyway since I don't have a scanner up here. Consider it a book just for me.

Hey Quinn,
I'm settling in ok but there might be a problem getting reports to you on time. My motel is in the middle of town and I have one bar. The wifi is basically functional but it's also super patchy. I asked the guy in the front office if there was anywhere around with better internet, but he just said they've learned to live with it. 
I can write things up as I find them, but what should I do if they don't go through?

I mean - it's in the mountains. Kind of makes sense that the reception is bad. 
If you can't send the reports to me as you write them, you should be good to hold onto them until you're back in civilization. I feel like if there was a problem, Jane would have given us more of a heads up beforehand.
Also, I got a definite answer from her about the book. She says no.
