Prime Minister Henry Collingridge
Thank you for your patience. I should also like to take this opportunity of thanking you for your friendship and your loyalty during this difficult time. Those of you, that is, who feel those words apply to you. Francis, I should like to thank you in particular for you valiant efforts over the last week. Only you and I know how much I owe you. I am only sorry the odds against us were too heavy.
