TO A COWARD
Issued the 20th of the Snow’s Maiden, in the Year 168 of the Second Age
BY THE WILL AND AUTHORITY OF THE PRINCESS
TO THE COWARD WHO WRITES TO ME,
I am not someone who feels fear. Threats, dangers, and anything alike hold no sway over me. Your tactics in pressuring me to make a choice of betrayal did not and will not frighten me. While you cower behind your words, I will continue to be at peace.
If you wish for my head on a plate, summon your courage and confront me, coward.
BY ORDER OF,
HER ROYAL HIGHNESS, Eriantiel Arthalion, Princess of Númenost and Lady of Aran-în-Eryn
