"I do not know why I am doing this, Personal Letters should not be in a Log." McNier said calmly with the background noise of ice in a tumbler. "No provable reason that the letters will get back in a single lifetime so those I want to relay events and thoughts will not get them."

Pause while a drink is taken.
