I would like to start off by saying how thankful I am for everything. I have always felt safe and secure under your name, and have done and will continue to do anything that is requested. Even in things that come with great danger, I am willing to fearlessly risk my life for you.

They offered me food, water, shelter, and most importantly, friendship. They are very kind people and very helpful.
I am writing to you, my beloved president, with a request. I know it may seem strange, but I would like to recommend welcoming the high chancellor.
