Sir Mortimer rails
Tribute?! No Way!
The wolves are circling: King Aescwine of Essex is asking for protection money. The Countess asked for our opinions, and we advised her to say no. We had parley with King Cerdic of Wessex after he landed his army in Hampshire. We gave him the same answer. We also saw a most curious thing in Camelot: a very fine sword, held fast in a large rock. Odd.
I think we shall have a war on our hands next summer...provided we make it through the winter.
