: My dear E.Lane,
: Please accept my most sincerely and humble apologies [flourished bow] for the audacious manner of my opening for trade in this great land of Mohicanland, without appearing before the appropriate governing bodies for permission. Had I known -- if only I had known -- permission was required! I would most faithfully have made the appropriate obeisance and petition for the right to trade. Accept as my excuse the mere fact that the place has appeared dead for the past several days! I could have sworn all had be scalped!
: As for my information about my Cooperism, well, trade secrets, don't you know... But, I will let this little bobcat out of the bag -- I have a source and am acquiring more for certain rare books that certain Mohicanites are "in'ner-ested in" (to quote Le Longue Carabine).
: As for She-Who-Track..., E.Lane my friend, I have no idea who this is or where she is! But as you know, I am new to this territory!
: I look forward to being able to be of asstance and to make fair trades with the citizenry!
: Yours, respectfully,
: English Trader
Dear English Trader,
That's better. Perhaps your tactic can be explained by that new fad in the colonies ... democracy? If so, best you learn quickly that democracy has NO place in Mohicanland. We Traders know well the dangers of allowing too much freedom to the masses.
As for the sleepy townsfolk of Mohicanland; they stay as they lay. While the citizenry is lulled into a false sense of security and la la land, we can carry out our schemes (which ARE in the best interest of all concerned ... namely myself, the Dutch Trader, the French Trader, the Canadian Trader , and MAYBE, the English Trader?).
Now, do you have fine English Black Tea?
