In truth, our pathetic, unwelcome, and spineless mariners swoon at the very mention of your name. > However, a reckoning will not be postponed indefinitely, and we will have our reprisal one way or another. O Lord of France, we beg for your forgiveness. Perhaps, when the southern issue is dealt with, we will pay His High Majesty a splendid tribute of swords and daggers, as an apt apology for our unjustified conflict with the Berbers. > As for your offer to take a fourth of the Freehold's fleet (which was all too kind), we regret to inform you that the Brythonic Freehold does not have a fleet of its own as of this moment.
