- Lord MacTail,
It is with a sense of urgency that I write. I received news of the Order's attack on Diagon Alley yesterday. From the sound of it and the photos included in the paper here, it seems the damage is extensive, that casualties were accrued, and there is a sense of alarm and disrest amongst your citizenry. The last thing I desire is a return to that position of power which I once held and passed onto you and Ms. Chase, but I feel I cannot long sit and do nothing. I was once of use to our former leader in ensuring certain threats simply ceased to be. With the Order's persistence and refusal to die, it is clearly time that we find a way to drown the ashes such that the flame might never reignite for the Phoenix to rise, and I would love nothing more than to be the one to see to its ultimate demise. Their likes have been a thorn in our side for entirely too long, and if we are to continue to prosper, they must not exist much longer. I have no desire to do anything which might undermine you, however. (You and Ms. Chase have done well in my absence and will continue to do so with or without my presence, after all.) Should my skill set be of use, you need only say the word.
