His Most Magnificent Majesty, Emperor of the Mughals and the Indus, Sunrise and Stars, His Excellency and Singularity, Lord of Lords Bestower of Bracelets, Khan Bahadur, Maharadjadhiraja Berge Lord du Destin your servant, Rai Sahib Gautam Mehta avows soon traitor Raleigh will be brought to justice.
This one has travelled to Madrid in country of Spain with your servants Nawab ul-Marathu, Alastor du Sang, Enzo Eymard, Ricardo and Paxton of French House Wildemoon, Denis l’Menace, Gilbert Durand, and Yonten of Mughals. It seems only I understand specifics and secrecy of task. Others seem to feel they are under some punishment, not undertaking task in stealth for glory of Indus Empire. Along travel from Paris in France to Madrid in Spain, Enzo Eymard did lose his life in attack of Brotherhood. Ricardo of House Wildemoon did find himself wounded by different attack of Brotherhood, and did leave mission at port of Sofia in Carpathia, and Nawab ul-Marathu did vanish, with his warriors, from very port of Madrid.
Yonten of Mughals has acted as Emir of troupe and led us through port of Madrid in search of traitor Raleigh. Raleigh did seem to have loyalists throughout port. We have fought through siege supply warehouse, through very Palace in Madrid, even into Chambers of Queen of Spain! In Palace Denis l’Menace did meet with ignoble end - during battle with guards he did trip and fall into snare intended to trap man’s ankle and leave him helpless near ceiling. Denis l’Menace found himself hung by neck. This one, too, has suffered misfortune. This one suffered slash from rapier in battle with Palace Guards.
Still, Masters of Royal Docks in Madrid have been bought by Yonten the Mughal, and no ship will leave Port until Yonten says. City Watch of Madrid have been bribed, and gates remain closed for night. Surely traitor Raleigh can not escape port of Madrid!
This one admits to odd feeling of anticipation. This one had been trained in law, language and diplomacy (the better to serve Your Most Magnificent Majesty) and arts of stealth and deception. During voyage to Madrid, this one has also learned martial art of French style fencing. This one immodestly hopes to be the once to subdue Raleigh - with Raleigh’s own sword this one took from him in City of Naples. To subdue the traitor and offer sword in service to Your Most Magnificent Majesty, along with other skills, would be glorious victory for Empire of Indus, and gratifying to this one.
Your Most Humble Servant, Rai Sahib Gautam Mehta
