Friar Tuck adds a bit of background to the story...


Dear Brother,

I have read your missive and understand what you are saying.

The issue causing some concern to the council is the fact that we would appear to have made a number of payments that were touted as being "the last and only payment required" and yet the transaction still lingers on.

We understand that we may incur some incidentals. That is the very nature of business transactions. We are just keen to learn when the final reckoning is likely to occur.

On a different front: What is your denomination? I mean, what arm of the greater church body do you give your allegiance?

It is a special time of the year for us. We are bottling our world famous liqueur. Perhaps you have heard of it? It is called Sherwood Green. It is quite a lethal drop if you are not ready for it. When all this is over my brothers and I would like to share a glass with you, to celebrate a job well done. Are you permitted alcohol, Reverend Rufus?

It is time for vespers, I must away.

God bless you, Reverend Adams. I remain, your humble servant,

Friar Augustus Tuck.
