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 regrets traitor Raleigh has avoided justice.
In Madrid we did - under leadership of Yonten - penetrate private chambers of Raleigh’s agent Lorenzo. Traitorous swine had fled. Within, we did find letter of insult. “Insignificant mongrels who shall be hunted down one by one.” Named were Paxton Wildemoon, Ricardo Wildemoon, Nathaniel Lord Captain Mayweather, Nawab ul-Marathu Alastor du Sang, Julianus Lord Ravenot, Gilbert Durand, Odoardo Lord Farnesse, and this humble one - all those who recently carried out Your will in Naples, Cyprus and Serbia.
Before finishing said letter, door crashed open and many guards did rush in. Ricardo Wildemoon did hurl his purse at invaders. Distraction served well enough. Several guards did divert eyes as purse burst and coin jingled across stone floor. This one drew prized rapier of Raleigh and slashed air. While this one has studied fencing form, no opponent has truly been fought. This one’s form must look correct, for no guards did dare approach too closely. This one was last of friends to leap from window and vanish into night.
We did return to Nantes in France via so-called “King’s Highway.” Despite failure to capture Raleigh, spirits were high. There was much drinking at each stop at a “Lady Catherine’s Inn.”
Rest assured, my Khan, By the thirty-three million and one Gods of the Indus and Europeans, this agent will not rest until Enemy of Empire Raleigh is brought to justice.
Your Most Humble Servant, Rai Sahib Gautam Mehta
