Dear Beeloved Bee Holder,
You buzzed: "I sense mixed signals in your message. You say it bee-hooves you to distrust me, but you bee-lieve me. What am I to think? Should I send Spelling Bee to assist you, or is this a job for Sigmund Freude (cousin of Schaden, I think)? At any rate, Spelling Bee appreciates the kudos."
We apologize for the confusion. Mixed signals to a Bee can Bee very dangerous. But, the ambivalence is to Bee expected. On one hand you buzz to us the news of a Huron-Iroquois alliance, which is hard to Beelieve. On the other hand, you offer the first reasonable explanation for She-etc's capture. This is Beelievable. So, you force us to both distrust and yet trust your buzzings at the same time. Beesides, we don't often deal with Bees when gathering information. This is all very new to us and we are cautious as to not find ourselves caught in a sting operation.
You also buzzed: "He is working hard to overcome his childhood name of Wanna Bee, and I think he is making great strides."
What does Wanna Bee wanna bee? Or what did he wanna bee? A native Honey Bee? A Butterfly? Or given his Bee-autiful spelling skills, a Book Worm?
Then you buzzed some more: "Since there is some ambivalence in your message, I will continue to work to earn your trust. The next thing is to get your message to She, etc. I will send Luck Bee (A Lady) tonight. But though we may give She, etc. hope, it may bee a little complicated to extricate her from the camp. What about the other 12 prisoners?"
So, are you a worker Bee? Who is your Queen Bee? Luck Bee? Tell She-etc to Bee brave and Bee watchful. The other 12? Yes, we must try to reach them. Are they useful? Could they Bee acculturated to the ways of Mohicanland?
We await your next message. Bee careful and hold fast your stinger. If you succeed in this mission, you will have earned both our trust and admiration. Now Bee gone with you!
