Pigeon post...

The messenger pigeon alighted upon the window of Duke Karl Frederick's study. Talking to it in a soothing manner, the Duke unwrapped a folded paper,which he extracted from a small copper tube attached to it's leg. He read the following:

"Things are afoot here in the castle. Duke Peter is planning to go upon autumn manoeuvres with the Ducal army. I will explain more when I can."

Having read the note the Duke threw it upon the fire and stared at the flames ,deep in thought, for along,long time...

  1. Another post by pigeon arrives.
    Out of breath and in a state of collapse the bird releases its note:
    My Dear Duke,
    The expected battle of the 8th instant at Carmugeon Castle did not occur. The Prince did not attack.
    Your Obt. Servant,
    von Bergmann
