To the Dear Lady, Miss Marcia:
I am writing to implore you approach the goods offered by the French Trader with great care and a cautionary attitude. For it is well-known that French traders are unscrupulous in their methods of procuring goods from various and sundry sources, often without the consent of the owner of those wares. Why, in many cases, they cannot ask permission to remove goods from their owners, as said owners are DEAD! The French Traders are notorious for picking the remains from fallen soldiers and burned-out cabins on the northwest frontier, like so many vultures and wolves.
Now, I do not wish to cast aspersions upon THIS French Trader, but they are all alike, dear Miss Marcia, and so I implore you to beware!! Even if his prices might be lower (which is another debate, I will add), his wares may have blood upon them!!
I remain, as always,
: The French Trader writes:
: : Mes amis,
: : There is no need to wait on the English for quality trade goods (if you can call theirs quality) for I have been very busy, like the ant, and have MANY items ready for trade at this time. Not only do I have quantity, but quality as well for these items I have are sought after by many. I have many personal items that one could most surely use to make ones life easier.
: : So if you can`t wait till G2K, then please stop by any of my well know trading posts and let us share a cup of brandy as we close a deal.
: : Your most humble servant,
: : French Trader
: : ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
: Bon Jour, Y'all!
: How exciting...hearing from TWO Traders in as many days! Tell me, Frenchie, do you have better PRICES than the Yengeese Trader, in addition to your wonderful selections??? We simple folks in Mohicanland must be very frugal with our coins, doncha know!
: And, may I assume that you are also planning to attend this Infamous G2K I've heard tell of?? I'd LOVE to see exactly what you have to offer...in the way of merchandise, I mean!
: Yours Most Graciously,
: Miss Marcia
