Late in the evening, after some observations of the heavenly spheres, Karl Frederick calls his secretary and dictates as follows -
I send you fraternal good wishes and trust that this letter finds you in good health. In the past and by various agencies our countries have been in communication. Through circumstances and my agents we have reached no resolution in days past. I wish for this to cease. I wish to open direct and full communications with you personally. I am sending my seal with this letter as a mark of good faith. May this mark a good fortune for both ourselves and all that is true.
Duke of Tradgardland
The Duke instructs this to be write, brought to him for the Ducal seal and then directly taken to Gallia by swift boat of passage directly this very night.
