Somehow, these things just pop into my head!

A missing piece of correspondence from "The Flame Grows Higher"

Dear Jenny and Willie,

Please accept my apologies for scaring the two of you half to death. In our line of work, you can't be too careful. But, looking back, I was particularly nasty.

Thank you for asking about my health. Our medic says my headache should go away in a few days; and yes, my men have been waking me up every 2 hours.

I've enclosed some marks. (They are real.) That should cover the chair and the bottle of aspirin.

Regarding the two ladies that we spoke of, I have heard that the inn has been put up for sale.

We will be in touch.

Please destroy this message.


Colonel Robert E. Hogan
