Dear Master Reginald Kent;
Allow me to extend my sincere sympathies on the misfortune of what misery winter has brought. It appears as though the heavens saw fit to loose a rather brutal storm that has befallen the township as of late and by proxy, the delay that it has caused in getting assistance that is needed out there in the forest. Truly this dreadful weather has been utterly abysmal and I can imagine that you’ve found yourself most inconvenienced by this turn of events. Since this is the case, I am unsure of when this letter should arrive but I shall be rather quick in assuring you that it brings good news. The details are listed below but to avoid keeping you in anticipation for longer than necessary, I will reassure you that not only was your letter well received, I can gladly confirm that the requests that you had made were fulfilled easily and fully. Alas, I am getting ahead of myself in this matter and I will offer you a full report of the details in the rest of this correspondence.
First of all, thank you very much for your kind consideration and for your honesty in the matters at hand. It is remarkably refreshing to be able to do business with man such as yourself, particularly in regards to the statements of where your interests lie. Because of your preference of getting straight to business and your previous letter showing your disregard for formalities in favor of quick action, the process of transferring the offending property to your name has already begun. There is currently very little to do so there is no anticipated hold up in regards to the current misfortune with the weather. By the time this letter reaches you, I should have all the arrangements settled and the motions beginning as early as the first week of the new year. My current trajectory, so long as there is no motion filed in objection, is that the proceedings should take only as long as to the end of February. As stated before, I have seen to the suggestions and requests that were outlined in your previous letter to me and everything is in place with no delay. The property outlines and blueprints will be sent upon the arrival of the final draft to my office and I shall see to it personally that it is posted to you the same day. Requests in triplicate have been made and all the paperwork is secured so as to ensure that there is no delay in the process regardless of who is handling it or how. The cost for the transfer at the time being is negligible and will be deferred until a later date when the property restoration costs are up for discussion. That will not be of any real issue until the thaw and possibly not even until late summer at current estimation. If there should be any change in the matter, you will be notified at once. Otherwise, should you be uncomfortable with this standing balance, however minor it is, please contact me at once that I might put your fears to rest.
The next order of business that you must be informed of is of somewhat strange news. As luck would have it, my client who has been fighting this order for possession of the property has taken ill. The prognosis on the fellow is that he is doing quite badly and seems to have taken a turn during the holiday season. I am, of course, terribly put out by my former client and his fading health but I can assure you that I have seen to it that his ailments have not slowed the progress of our proceedings in the least. I had mentioned before that the aforementioned proceedings will be put in motion and that a delay might only be caused if there is a sound objection. While my former client may have originally had grounds for such things, as he is currently entirely too ill and has been relegated to a hospital bed for the time being, there is no such projected issue with the matter at the time of writing. Should there be any change in his health issues, for better or worse, I shall let you know directly. I should stress again that the prognosis was very bad and that this is unlikely to get better in the foreseeable future.
Finally, in regards to the other concern that you had about the placement of the property, I can put your fears to rest, good sir. I have been there to appraise the situation personally and I can attest to the safety as well as the privacy of the lot on which it stands. There are currently barricades around the premises and while they are, admittedly, unsightly, they are doing their job of keeping out undesirable elements. It is secluded enough that the area should not be overwhelmed by any traffic, if you understand. Somewhat out of the way, of course, but no worse than what you are currently used to. By far, it has access to service roads but they are not often used in the winter and as of my research in the summer, they were sparsely travelled. There are enthusiasts, naturally, who are drawn to such back roads. Tourist types from out of town. The odd local with a penchant for a change of scenery or the need to get away from the hustle and bustle of town life. I have it on good account that you are familiar with the type so I won’t bore you further with the list of those you may have the great fortune of meeting in your development of such a prestigious landmark. I’m sure they will be most pleased with the restoration efforts and will likely be very generous when they see the amount of honest effort you are prepared to bring to our community and its well being.
I entrust you with the finer details of your proposal and await the contact of your council. You’ve been swift with your responses and the man behind your legal affairs is admirably efficient so I shall not pester you with the time limitations as I know they will be met with absolutely no issues. Should you need anything further in any regard that might aid the process, please do send for me. I shall make it my utmost priority. And with that, I leave you to enjoy the remainder of the storm as you recover from the cheer of the holidays. Blessings to you, good sir, until we meet.
