To the Spirit of The Dear Departed Turkish Trader:
Lamentations and great sorrow! What have I missed while traveling abroad these past many months? Have you -- as your missive indicates -- actually left New Amsterdam for nether lands? I'm aghast. And you're a ghost? What what what? What did I miss? Where are you? WHAT HAPPENED?
: By the way, do you remember a certain tape you had made and wished to gift me with out of the goodness of your heart?
: Cameron's Cabin is so far for me now... and all my camels are ethereal too ....perhaps one day, on your way in, you might stop at Heaven's Gate (ah-hem) and drop by for a cloud-like Turkish coffee????
: Cordially yours,
: Your favorite ex Trader Colleague
Ah yes -- Shame and deep embarrasment on this score. I did indeed promise you a tape and at the time of the writing of that promise, I did believe I would have for you such that very tape. However, the technology has AGAIN failed me and -- would you believe -- the tape is entangled and can't be played!! I have been told of some professionals who can untangle and restore tapes and I hope to find just such a magician. I see you are not pleased with me -- thus the coolness of your sign-off. Please, I beg of you, do not virtually flog me further, even if I do deserve it.
Rather, tell me when we can meet as I would love to see you again, if you are physically still within the vicinity of Cameron's Cabin.
Ever your faithful servant,
