: Dear Sirs;
: Perhaps you have wandered into the wrong colony? Mohicanland Morning Star Editors? HA!! Burning a little too much midnight oil, we'd say. You think yellow 'journalists' such as yourself will be able to compete or hurt THE COURIER? Not on your life (that is meant literally). In case you upstart Traders turned Typists really believe you can make such a move and live to tell about it, let us remind you of one simple fact ... we are the Editors of The Courier!!!! That means something around here, bubs (or bubbas, or bubbettes - whatever the case may be)!
: You would do well to ponder the many deceased interlopers in Mohicanland who hauled their sorry schemes into our colony. In fact, dear Dutch Traitor, it is we who gave you your start here. Do not bite the hand that has fed you, sis. And ... we have Dr. Mary in our camp!
: You have 24 hours to retract your offer, resume your merchants profession, and bring us our tea.
: Sincerely and most earnestly,
: The renowned, reputable, highly admired, immensely respected, widely read, oft praised, frequently envied, and very POWERFUL
: Courier Editors
Most Venerable Courier Editors,
Allow me to offer myself in support of your own interests in any way I can, seeing how my brother Traders are no brothers of mine and have chosen to exclude me from their menage a trois. As the Courier has been most graceous to me in the recent issue, I stand behind you -- say the word and I will throw down the gauntlet or bury my hatchet in the warpost or whatever they do in this frontier land...
Yours, as always,
