Intelligence Report of Kapellmeister Volker

HUNSRUCK, Aug. 16--Having recomposed herself with the assistance of the Prinzessin Maria-Aurora, Prinzessin Sophie-Vittoria led her cousin back to Sophie-Vittoria's chambers on the second floor, and called for a tea from a chambermaid. While waiting, she took the opportunity to thumb through the documents, which proved to be mostly additional promissory notes from notables of her father's court, payable either to Prinz Friedrich von Waldreck or to the Kapellmeister himself. Included in the papers, though, was the attached document unaddressed, but in Kapellmeister Volker's handwriting:
