Mr Newbery's clerk, Rogan Josh, has some news:
My Goodly Messrs Kudu and Mark,
I am being Mr Newbery's clerk and it is being my melancholy duties to be telling you that Mr Newbery is being delayed in his departures to your country.
Mr Newbery himself asked me to be contacting you on this matters and that is most certainly being the reason why I am doing it.
I am attaching a clipping of a newspaper that will be assisting you in your understandings of the difficult natures of his predicaments.
Yours mostly sincerely,
