Dear Friends,

This holiday finds me at the cusp between sadness and joy. In previous letters, I recounted the troubles between myself and John and how they've caused problems with my son's terrible condition. Almost five months on from his accident, Daniel is still sleeping in Greycastle Hospital. The doctors there have done nothing for him so far, and I remain steadfast in my conviction that the best place for him is at home. Unfortunately, despite all of your help and best efforts, John managed to keep Daniel at Greycastle by bribing the Health Office and saying I was 'mentally unstable'.

However, life is not all sad. I have been spending much time in the Brotherhood's libraries researching my son's condition. It seems that this is not the first instance of someone falling into a strange sleep, and that a cure is possible. I do not know much yet, but it appears to be connected to Catbite Gorge - where Daniel had his accident. In the next few days I intend to ask my colleagues at the University's History Department for help to check to [sic] city's archives.

Seeing Daniel pale and asleep in the stark lights of the hospital breaks my heart. I still remember him as a boy, when we used to go to services together and he had so much faith and curiosity. It is true that he turned away from us, no doubt under the influence of his father, and I believe that that sowed the seeds of his later misfortunes, but I also believe his heart is still good. I will not let anything stand in the way of his recovery and redemption.

Yours in faith,

Emily Saunion
