: Dear English Trader,
: First off, a denial: No, I do not have the honor of knowing the OttoMani Trader personally.
: Second, I was under the impression that The ET and The TT were devoted partners in trade, sworn to defend each other's profit, honor, and hide.
: However, as an innocent bystander and coooooompletely unbiased observer, I got to wondering if you, the trader with the most correct deportment at all times, mmight not be turning your back to your secret partner for the pleasure of having Rocky Mountain Oysters with Ms. Penny Saved and the notorious GayLee Cooper at Cameron's Cabin?
: again, as a completely innocent bystander and party sworn to truth, I can assure you t hat the rumors of The TT hving moonshine and b-b-q'd Duncan at Cameron's Cabin, are compleltely false! False, I tell you!
: The TT aka OM Trader is deeply hurt by your defection to the enemy's camp, but I have it on good authority that he will forgivie you if you send a Pontiac Moon via The Lady's Unicorn.
: Wishing you an intact scalp,
: yours truly,
: Merry Willow
I implore you to forgive me and to know me as a person who is equal to all -- I trade equally with all, am partial to none, am open to all suggestions, and am a fan of Rocky Mt. Oysters (especially battered and sauteed). This, of course, when I know that I too am treated fairly. There was, for instance, the matter of a previous meeting at Cameron's Cabin to which I most pointedly excluded! However, being of open mind and not, I sincerely hope, a breed apart, I am still willing to deal with the TT.
In fact, not only am I still intending to trade for a Dreamcatcher and a book for not only Pontiac Moon but much more besides. Technology, however, has been the barrier to my ability to complete THAT particular trade.
Please continue to trust me, newcomer as I am to the rules, as expressed by the Mohican Regulartory Department of Trade Regulations.
Yours in sincerety,
