(A Polly Waffle to the first person who can translate this into English.)

Mr Newbery replies:

Dear Mr Greay,

Thank you for your most curiously scrambled email.

Forgive my ignorance but how am I supposed to attach Dr Freud's body to an email? To prove to me that it can be done please attach a beer and a wedge of good cheddar to your reply to this email. Then, sipping the beer and nibbling the cheese, I will then follow your example. You will receive extra points if you can include a pickled onion.

But for one small problem.

Dr Freud's body, individually and collectively, resides in a morgue somewhere in Nairobi. And will stay there until the police release it for burial.

So what do you want me to do about this?

Yours most intrigued,

J. Cosmo Newbery,
Newbery & Associates.
