Dear Baron Quendal
I am eager to provide the help you have requested, but however my research has me much too busy right now. I have instructed assistant, Bodramblar, to help you with the items you have requested. He is very talented artisan, especially gifted at defensive devices, so I am confident the statues will serve you well.
As my studies are quite consuming, I request that all further dealings be directly with Bodramblar. He is quite reliable and he and I speak with one voice.
You may expect delivery on the full moon of Harvestide. I will expect payment on delivery.
