: : Respected Courier Editors, French Trader & Victoria,
: : This is baffling. I innocently follow up on a tip about a French Trader lurking in the woods, and end up disposing of the wrong trader? Two questions must be raised:
: : 1. It was a trader that was crushed and pounded to dust, right, so what is wrong with that? Competition is competition.
: : 2. Exactly HOW MANY traders are lurking in them-those bl**dy woods anyway?
: : Sincerely,
: : A confused, and slightly paranoid Dutch Trader
: Cher Neerlandais Commercant,
>>>Hooggeachte Redacteuren der Koerier,
: We do agree that having finished off the wrong Trader is a mere technicality which will cost you the promised Dutch Guilders. One competitive Trader is as bad as another, no?
: We have no way of knowing just how many traders are lurking in them "bloody woods"! Perhaps She-Who-Tracks etc. has heard something?
: What we do know is that though the French Trader says, "No war" ... you are determined to wipe out all competition no matter what, yes?
>>>What the French Trader says and what the French Trader thinks might be very different things. The fact that I'm slightly paranoid doesn't mean they are NOT after me.
: Here's news: A Mohawk runner came upon the following note pinned to one of your late couriers in the forest;
: "Mon Ennemi,
: C'est bien fait pour vous! Faites attention!"
: What do you make of it?
>>>I need better personnel, oui?
: On another matter; We have come into possession of some currency once belonging to your mother company ... the Dutch East Indies Co. Are you interested in these coins? Also, we have old Dutch Dogon trade beads ... We're willing to make a deal.
: The Courier Editors
>>>There is something going on here. Now the Courier is also moving into the trading business. Looks like some cleverly designed variation of the "Englandspiel" is being played in Mohicanland.
