: : Esteemed Traders of Old Amsterdaam & York,
: : We have never heard, nor seen, more eloquent verse or gesture offered than that we have witnessed here today. You have beseeched us to treat with you in such magnificent a manner that we would be deaf if we were to refuse your plea. Please accept our humble apologeeee if we have once offended thee. We do propose on bended knee that we now form a confederacy.
: : Consider thee possibility; Not one, not two, nor even three, but five Traders in our new found League. Sugar, salt, and English Tea; We now be a monopoly. Control of all thee markets free; We'd rule the ports and own the seas. We'll crush all peddlers we might see; For such will our new powers be.
: : Consider that, we do now plea; Respected Traders, what say thee?
: : Oh, Dutch Trader, there's one thing more. Must we trade until we're sore?
: : With highest regards,
: : The Courier Editors
: To The Poetical Dutch Trader, Coiner of Dittees,
: I am, as you will see, most willing to accept your apologee, and thank you for your sweet dittee, which does soften my hard heart especiallee. And with the Courier Editors I do agree, we will continue trading with camraderee. And if your address you will send to mee, will I send to you favourite tea. And now I must quit this rhapsodie.
: And in closing, let me say also that I WAS sore but am sore no more.
: With sincere appreciation and best wishes,
: English Trader
Dear Colleague & Courier Editors,
I see the light, and must agree, the future lies in a confederacy. ET, FT, CT, and E.Lane and me, will form an indestructable monopoly. Thank you for the tea, ET, and Courier Editors, I have forgiven thee. You ask, must we trade until we're sore? Not necessarily, but we'll trade merrily more and more. There is just one thing left that worries me, and that is I might be forever hooked on writing silly poetry....
