Communication to the Soweiter League: Re: Stagonia

Your Lordships,
At the direction of the Hurtshog Fahrtz, we are communicating to you our concern over the recent "request" arising from Stagonia.
While it is true that perhaps not even Cut-me-own-throat Dilbert would have included the missing beast in his sausages, we do empathize with anyone concerned over a missing relative.
On the other hand, it is dubious that your some what loosely organized league could possibly produce this person in the manner required, especially given that Stagonian agents themselves seem to have misplaced him. Therefore, we are afraid that the Stagonian note is a mendacious request crafted to serve as a malaprop ultimatum.
At the direction of the Hurtzhog, we are prepared to offer you the services of a few battalions of musketeers which are currently being repositioned south of the Main for the defense of Offenbach, which we believe is the closest of your league to us.
Gen. Oscar Meyer, Frankszonian Minister of the Army

To the renowned General Oscar Meyer,

Sir, you are well-known in our lands. At this time we respectfully decline the generous offer of troops to help defend our lands. Our own General Warshington, commander of the Soweiter League's Main Army, ably aided by his aide the Sous Marquis de Laffalot, assures the council that he can defend our borders from incursion by the Vile Stagonians. More troops will be added to his command now that our Summer Recess has been completed.

Your Humble Servant,
Zurik Fitz-Badger
