John Silver replies (How could he not?):
Good day to ye, Barrister Eke,
My name be John Silver and I be most keenly interested in your proposal to be progressing my payment to its most satisfactory conclusion. I be a mariner, retired some years now and I be keenly interested in the money.
Please be giving me a few more of the details, the guts and gizzards of the matter, if you see my drift.
Yours most heartily,
