Noble Brother & Scholar,
The trials have shown me I will never understand short people. I will never bring up Mikala after this letter to you again, you ALL think so differently. I wish you a happy life in your endeavors and will not trouble you with my presence or words again. Send word to whom you wish about which other brother-scholar I will speak with should we dock there once again.
For what you feel its worth I am sorry I don’t understand short people customs. I am sorry for upsetting you. I do not ask forgiveness, for that seems to be a rare trait among short people and not everyone possesses it. If I could give you mine I would and regardless of how history views me I forgive you.
Be well tiny scholar, I wish you a long life,
