the end.

My Dear Mr Loukas,

This is as much of a suprise to me as it appears to have been to you.

I can only assume that some malevolent third party has been intercepting our emails.  I knew something of this nature would happen if you involved your Sister-in-law, but would you listen?

This is the last time I so much as consider a business deal with anyone so obviously unstable and under the near constant influence of strong drink.

Ethel.
