The friar returned some time later and penned the following reply to Mr Justice.

Dear Mr Justice,

I wish you a joyous and fruitful day. It has been a trying day for me as I have been reprimanded due to a small indiscretion and have spent much of the day in solitary reflection.

I think the things that most confused me with your letter were the words. Yes, definitely the words. But after much reading and re-reading and a deal of time spent in silent contemplation I belief I have absorbed the gist of them.

I must say that I am much more understanding of the relationship between you and me and the lawyer now. Or at least I think I am.

You mention a wire transfer. What is this and what does it involve? It that for the $1,800? I fear I will need more information than just "Mr Justice's lawyer, Africa". Perhaps you can send me an address that will not strain the patience of the post office and put too much reliance on my already shaky feelings about telepathy?

I believe I heard my first Christmas carol this morning.

Waiting to hear from you now.

Yours in Christ,

Friar Augustus Tuck.

Give me understanding, and I shall keep thy law;
Yea, I shall observe it with my whole heart.

-Psalms 119:34

He sent the email and noticed that there was another one coming in.
