I’m sending you this dispatch by the fastest means possible, but I’ve no doubt that word has already reached you that the eternal mist covering Romania and Transylvania has lifted. And it was indeed a mist that covered the entire landscape. A mist that has taken its toll on agriculture. And poor growing seasons has led to increased reliance on livestock for food, starving livestock. And now, with only surpluses of wood, wine, and soldiers, much is needed as the weather becomes colder. In particular, all manner of foods capable of wintering, and oat fodder to rebuild the strength of the milk herds.
Your most respectful and fond brother
