To the Dutch Trader:
If it has been your design to cease hostilities by the mere publication of "ditties", well I can say that the power of words to sooth has always proven to be more effectual that guns and tomohawks. However, it must be the RIGHT words, and I must also say that your obvious disregard of certain OTHER TRADERS who are members of Mohicanland has probably done more harm than good in ceasing hostilities. Let it be known that I, for one (and what does my dear Otto Mani Trader say?) take very strong offense to your obvious oversight.
Yours, as always,
