Your Stories Await Telling

To Lord Arran | by hand, late afternoon of Thursday 22nd of September

A message written on white rag paper, with blue-black oak gall ink, sealed with the Melville coat of arms on viridian wax, and delivered by hand to the Hamilton suite in Windsor Castle.



Dear Lord Arran

Please forgive me for not meeting you at the Hen's Toes on Monday. My wife's death has hit me harder than I realized, and I needed to keep to myself for a few days until the bout of melancholy passed. Perhaps you would accept to reschedule at your convenience?

Your humble and obedient servant,



The note was delivered along a bottle of aged whisky from Crieff, north of Stirling.
