Dear Mr Justice,

These are indeed exciting times.

I have had the honour of being selected as the new Abbot of the monastery! Can you believe that?? Quite a feather in my hood, I am sure you will agree.

I am setting about moulding the monastery and its practices to a new format where it is better equipped to meet the challenges and needs of the modern world. This will keep me quite busy, I can assure you!

The friars seem quite amenable to my plan of putting in a beer hall to attract those in need of our ministrations but I am finding resistance from the nuns to my request for some topless waitresses. They cannot seem to see that this will have a great attraction to the incorrigible sinners and should draw flocks of them to our services.

I will continue to work on them.

With all the brouhaha going on here I must confess to have lost some of the threads of the procedures associated with your transaction. Could you please refresh my memory as to what you will require from me. I would greatly appreciate that.

Yours in Christ,

Augustus Tuck
Abbot of St.Rumpet's Monastery and Orphanage.
In God I will praise his word, In God I have put my trust;
I will not fear what flesh can do unto me.

- Psalm 56:4
