Greetings unto the lady Revecca Ruspoli, widow of my
enemy Captain Carados Ruspoli,

Dear lady, I fear that you have been gravely
misinformed as to the events of a year ago that led to
the defeat of your late husband's army and his capture
and punishment for crimes against the laws of the
land. For indeed, your lord was defeated in the field
of battle and his dark horde scattered to the winds.
In this rout, your husband was seized and made to face
the only judgement fitting for the numerous crimes
that he had committed; death. He was executed by the
sword, a sentence normally reserved for nobility and
was therefore shown greater respect than he truly

However, if you will but surrender the captives that
we know well to be in your possession; most of all
Master Airaklee's dear lady, Baroness Ceinwen, disband
your army and submit to the just rule of the Crown of
this great Kingdom, we will see to it that you are
appointed lands and income that will see that you are
provided for in all the years of your widowhood. The
time for a peaceable solution grows short though, so
do not ponder long on these, our terms.

I truly do pray for a peaceable end to this situation
but doubt not that should you choose otherwise, the
stalwart warriors of Ansteorra will not let you
proceed unchecked.

In service to Christ and Crown,
Kainin Tepesa
Baron of Bonwicke
