Your letter couldn't have arrived at a better time! The attacks have begun, but not like anything we had prepared for. Snipers ad guerilla warfare seek to beseige us.
We thought the overt persecution of the Romans was horrific, and it is. But this invasion is like poison seeping into our bread and wine, subtle and almost undetectable at first, but no less deadly.
My dear John,
You are too funny! You make me sound like a combination between the Motel 6 guy ("We'll leave the light on.") and Oprah with all her philathropy. Maybe you need to get out a bit more, at least to the other side of the island.
