When I came to Seattle, I had a feeling it would be exciting, and your efforts have made that impression true in more ways than I expected. When I did my research to determine who I would send on this fool’s errand and take the blame for my associates’ efforts, I must say my opinion of you was quite low. I do not like being wrong, but I am willing to make an exception in this case. You were thrown into the fire, and you survived. For this I salute you. The coming months and years will indeed be trying time, and only the
strong will survive as my efforts come to fruition. You have shown that you have what it takes to survive the coming changes. So, as a small token of my esteem, I have deposited the amount of 3,000 nuyen in
your accounts. It is not much, but I am on a limited budget, and you deserve something. I only hope that you are wise enough to see that money is nothing more than a tool, a means to an end, not an end
itself. Chasing after money just to have it is the kind of thinking leads to corruption, and there is no place for corruption in my new world.
Please do your best to remain incorruptible, I would like you to have a place in my new world. With that being said, I will leave you with one final thought. This day you have bested me; not many can claim that,
and you must understand that I cannot allow that to happen too often or my plans will never come to fruition. I strongly urge you to steer clear of my future endeavors, for if you get in my way again, I will not
hesitate to destroy you.
Fare thee well.
