Your Excellencies,

I hesitate to speak for the populace of Hellsgate, but I think we can
all agree that your unwavering support, love and dedication has been
instrumental in our formation.

We will always think of you fondly and I, for one, am proud that you
will always be known as Lord and Lady Hellsgate.

In service to my Country, my Crown and the finest Barony in the
Society, I remain your most obedient servant,
Lady Helene Dalassene
