My Dear Lady Lucillia,
I was most dismayed to hear of your rejection of my proposal of marriage. I am sure there has been a frightful misunderstanding of how advantageous this match would be. Let me clarify in the most animated language permitted me to allow you full understanding of my situation.
First, as anyone who is anyone knows, I am next in line to my father's vast and unequaled kingdom. I, as my father, have inherited the blessing that all I touch turns to gold. Our expansion of our borders stretches gainfully each year, with minimal loss of life. We have recently acquired the western foothills, which are clothed with a thousand sheep.
I am the envy of all noblemen, as few have achieved the level of excellence I have in the Summer Statesman Games of Equestrian Skill, Endurance and Intelligence.
I have heard it said among the ladies in the court that my handsome countenance is unmatched by any. Though I would never speak of myself in such a manner, I did think it worth mentioning in case you had forgotten.
The sun robes me in its glory, and the moon and stars bow down to me each early morning. The rivers themselves flow only with my permission. The wind through the pines whisper my name in reverence!
Now, my father is a leader among men, and I shall stand upon his shoulders. Any lady of your standing should swoon at my offer. I judged you to be fit for me when I learned your uncle owns the largest estate in the countryside, next to your own father in Hevenshire. It would be an appropriate addition, and really, another jewel in my crown to acquire such a vast property.
I don't like to boast, as I'm certain there is no need of it, but may I also mention the wing and the living quarters in which you would abide is larger than your entire manor.
Now that we have cleared the air, I anxiously await your positive response.
Your most humble servant,
Prince I. Vaunt III
