l'Duc de Silhouette To Governor of Ny Tradgardland

May it please Your Excellency Governor of Ny Tradgardland,

I am gratified and honored to receive your inquiry regarding closer ties with Gallia. The Britannians, as I beg to hope you concur, are voracious in their appetite for aggrandizement. Indeed we are on constant alert here at the Fortress of Louisbourg on Cape Breton Island.

I will be pleased to receive your ideas when convenient for you. Should these arrive sooner than later, I am of the opinion the frigate l'Vengeance recently arrived in the harbor with news from Gallia and the War in Germania could speedily take your letters to l'Prince de Charade, our Foreign Minister for review.

You may be pleased to know that a portion of the news from Gallia regards your diplomat von Bergman. I am very pleased to say before his voyage to Louisbourg, l'Capitaine of l'Vengeance visited von Bergman in the naval hospital at Le Havre. The wounds he suffered in the vexing naval action of last June have healed to a miraculous extent perhaps allowing him to return home or to resume his mission to Versailes as soon as, well, now. Praise God.

We await your correspondence with pleasure and more as I remain,
Votre Serviteur,
l'Duc de Silhouette
Fortress of Louisbourg
