My Dearest Friend, the Turkish Trader,
Your able pupil, the late Otto's daughter, did indeed excel as a Nouvelle Trader (my prior mistake!) and I look forward to dealing with her in the future. I have great faith in her ability to accurately read the cards; and her prediction of my future gave me as much satisfaction as can be gained from such necromancy. But one must be circumspect, as witches are stilled burned at the stake in these parts, especially when victuals are scarce at Duncan's BBQ, and I would hate to see that happen to our novice.
She will, in future, need to learn to handle her queens and pages of the cups better; for to keep up with the spirits of the British is, as you noted, not for the faint of heart. You will be pleased to know that the Dutch Trader is one such who can keep up with the flowing spirits! I heartily recommend you make the acquaintance of the Dutch Trader. Forget the FT, for he is a vile beast!
I remain, as always, and in anticipation of the music of Jihan,
: The Turkish Trader, aka the late Otto Mani Bey's youngest daughter Leyla, who unsuccessfully tried to pass herself off as a sophisticated trader of camel-pearls-baklava-and harem-beauties, came around from her stupor induced by Bumppo's spirits, and confided in me your pleasure at your fortunes as revealed in the bottom of the (non-existent) coffee cup.
: Well, she is my pupil, and so I am pleased to hear that she seems to excel in one matter, albeit not related to the spirits.
: Ah hem, you might say that she relates to the spirits of another kind.
: Indeed you shall meet again with her at said tavern next Saturday and dine on great food, drink ambrosia and revel in the songs belter by Ms. Jihan, whose fame had truly preceded tonight's accidental encounter.
: I bid you a great and warm Valentine's Eve!
