A Letter from Carpania

TO: Major General Norris, commander of the forces of Hesse-Fedora

(AKA Ed Youngstrom)

Knowing that you require reinforcements to support our brother’s campaign to rid the Frankfurt area of the papist Gallians, I have been instructed by General Kuhster, Minister of War for Friedrich Hapnich, Markgraf of Carpania, to assemble the armies of Carpania and march to join your command. I will bring the following forces to the campaign, to wit: a battalion of musketeers drafted from the Regiments Zweibieren and Teutonica; a battalion of fusiliers drafted from the Regiments von Stuppe and Paulaner, a small battalion of grenadiers from all four regiments, a strong detachment of the Jager Korps Staffeldunkel reinforced by the Freikorps Warsteiner; two squadrons of the Dragoon Regiment Hapnich, and accompanying artillery. I eagerly await the designation of the army assembly area.

Please pass this news to Landgraf Bogey and also pass the felicitations of Markgraf Hapnich to his brother monarch.

Respectfully, your most obedient servant,

Jacob Baron von Stuppe, General of Infanterie

Vielen danke, meine Herzog, more fodder for the horses so we can move faster to foul the Imperial ambitions!
