Good Sir,

I appreciate your recognition Sir. As Abbot, I am head of this Monastery in ALL ways. I always have the upper hand.

Forgive me for getting slightly confused, I am only recently starting to understand what you are talking about. The amount you mention, '$25.000,000 million dollars', seems very large. Correct me if I am wrong but is that 25 million million dollars? You mention it twice in your letter but I cannot believe it; it is so large. I think it is more than the GNP of Australia. Are you sure about the amount?

I am sorry, Mr Justice, but Friar Tuck is a bad apple and while the Hooded Council has reprieved him from dismissal from the Monastery I believe that he must be made an example of. This is an internal affair and I would counsel you not to interfere.

I am uncertain about what you mean when you talk of $3,000. I am to send this to some lawyer but who, and how, and when?

Yours sincerely,

Abbot Costello.
