: 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?
: E. Lane
Tea -- ah, that gift of the gods, that most wond'rous herb from which springs that wond'rous beverage. Do I have tea? Is our soveriegn King the second of his name? I have tea, but moreover, I can bring back from Angletaire any tea of your choice: Pekoe, Ceylon, Darjeeling, Earl Grey (who hasn't even been born yet), you name it, I can get it! I will soon be trading with those fine purveyors, Messrs. Forntum and Mason.
As for the best interests of Mohicanland, I seek nothing but to embrace Mohicanites everywhere (some more than others...). Although, those Frenchies can't be trusted, and I should be remiss if I didn't warn one and all to beware the French Trader.
I am your humble servant,
