: 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,
: English Trader
Hmmm... I can see that this does bother thee.... My sincere apologeeee.... with this ditty, just for thee???
Elegy for the English Trader!
Oh esteemed trader of exquisite tea
I see, I have offended thee
I hope to soothe your anger, and there is more
I hope you will be trading till you're sore
I have not forgotten you, oh dear ET
But you have never shared your tea with me
Would you consider me a partner if I swore
I hope we'll all trade till we're sore
English Trader, bear with me
Is cooperation still a possibility?
I would welcome four, five or more
Do we not all want trading till we're sore?
ET, accept my humble apology
I did not mean to counter thee
Honestly, I long for nothing more
But all of us trading till we're sore?
With the highest regards,
