The Abbot putt the sound of the brawl outside from his mind. He would have to deal with it, or the fallout of it, soon enough.

He started a reply to Mr Justice:

Dear Mr Justice,

Have I offended you? I have been downgraded to 'Attn:Mr.Tuck' again!

Never mind.

My family, such as an Abbot can have, is well but there seems to be some short tempers today amongst the women folk. They are so difficult to understand at times. Why do they insist on thinking that there is anything emotionally binding with sex? Don't they realize that it is just a momentary physical thing? I do find it most confusing at times. Now I understand why Abbot Costello used to be so fond of his goat.

You mention 10,000 Euros. I must confess that I do not really know what this is in real money but I will sort that out in due course. Will a cheque be acceptable?

There is a small problem with the Certificate of Ownership. Well, two problems actually.

It is made out to Friar Augustus Yuck.

Firstly, I am no longer a friar and am in fact the abbot of the monastery.

Secondly, my name is Tuck, not Yuck.

Will this jeopardise the transaction? Should I delay my trip? Please advise ASAP.

Thank you for the contact details for London, I was wondering what would be happening at that end.

I leave in 24 hours; I feel that it will be a long 24 hrs.

Yours in Christ,

August Tuck,
Abbot, St.Rumpets Monastery & Orphanage.

His name shall endure forever: his name shall be continued as long as the sun: and men shall be blessed in him: all nations shall call him blessed.

- Psalms 72:17

Outside, the commotion continued.

“Trollop! ”, “Tart! ”, “Whore! ”, “ Strumpet!”, “Harlot! ”, “ Hooker!”,
