Dr Alex confirms that the amount he needs is $35,000. That's US $, too; none of this Australian peso stuff.

Dear Friar Tuck,

Your mail received this morning.

You are to send the sum of US$35,500 (Thirty-five Thousand, Five Hundred United States Dollars Only) which represents the 0.1% of your contract payment.

Best regards and be guided.

Rev. Adams.

Friar Tuck is shocked.

My Dear Brother,

I am shocked. I realize now that I did see the figure. Only I thought you were referring to the whole amount of the transaction.

You want $35,000. This is not the sort of money a monastery carries in a jam jar in the vestry you know! I do not know what church you belong to but it must have a more generous congregation that we can muster.

Is there another option?

I remain, most humbly,


Like a lion that is greedy of his prey, and as it were a young lion lurking in secret places.

- Psalm 17:12.
