Dear Professor Avalanche,
I can only hope that this missive finds you well and in full control of your faculties. As formidable as they are, the rigours of such an undertaking can strain the resolve of even the most dynamic of our citizens.
Having issued the requisite titles of deed and precautionary letters of introduction upon your departure from Caledon, it has come to our attention that we have yet to be in receipt of your initial report with respect to the founding of said colony.
Therefore it is with a sense of urgency that I prevail upon you to return to us, by whatever means currently at your disposal, your communique regarding the status, progress and viability of the lands secured by you on the mainland in the name of our Sovereign Majesty.
Please convey my best wishes to your wife, Madam Begonia. The needlework on the colonial flag that she returned to us is of the highest craftsmanship, though one wonders how a person of such delicate dimensions could have wrestled such a textile into submission. One imagines that considering the gaiety and intemperance of her native lands, the mainland will hold little to dismay her.
