Mon cher Mon Ami FT
I am in your debt for the service you are providing re. the soon-to-be triumphant homecoming of our mutual and beloved friend, the English Trader.
As you well know, I am rather fond of her eloquency and hardy-drinking companionship. Also, ET's new and most important position as the Marketing Director of THE ROSE, awaits her hands-on-foot-down-chin-up-whip-crack type of leadership into the big blue yonder of Readership.
Once again dear FT, TESHEKKUR EDERIM.
YOurs ever so truly,
The Turkish Trader
As you all may know, Doc Mary and I have just flown into the "Land Down Under" in an attempt to save the Aboriginals and bring back the English Trader. Negotiations are moving at a very slow pace at this time. It seems that Doc`s "broom built for two" is barely large enough for the three of us and the Aussies still insist that we take all the items they`ve offered. I think they are afraid we're gonna back out of the deal. And that incessant talking!! (Doc - does this broom come with a trailor hitch?) If we agree to take all this stuff - what on earth are we going to do with it? You may find some very strange items for sale in the trading post come Gathering. And I do mean strange...
: Some of you might be pondering "Why would the poor French Trader, during one of the most peaceful times he has experienced since he journeyed into Mohicanland, go through all the trouble and great expense to not only free his antagonist BUT bring her back as well?!?" There are many reasons. One, Mohicanland would just not be the same without ET. Quiet, but not the same. Who else would I have to compete with? Without another trader, I would be free at will to raise the prices of my trade goods beyond the means of the many Mohicanites. Besides, EVERYONE knows that Frenchmen are lovers not fighters. It would just go against my sweet nature. (Of course I do make an exception for Gnomes...)
: Well, I have to go corral Doc Mary. It would seem that Australia is just ripe and bursting with exotic plants and animals the likes of which she has never seen. She's gathering everything in site with dreams of new spells and potions. I, for one, wouldn't want to be a Gnome.
: If everything goes as plan, we should return on the morrow. **HEY DOC! THAT'S ENOUGH KANGAROO JERKEY. AND STOP EATING THOSE GIANT WHITE GRUBS! I HAVE TO RIDE BEHIND YOU YA KNOW!**
: Your Most Honorable and Humble Servant,
