Dear Baron Quendal,
It was with great interest I read your last missive. I can certainly provide you with defensive devices. Though we have never met, I suspect we share a similar world view. I too have found the powers-that-be of Goodwell to lack creative thinking. No doubt you have heard about some of my clashes with them. I think it wise of you to have made efforts to bring a firm hand to the region around your new home base. I will consider your offer.
