16. Chapter Sixteen

Dear Lady Henriette of Bourbon,

I regret to inform you that your Mother, her Royal Highness the Duchess of Bourbon, has fallen ill. The best physicians have been sent for. Please rest assured your Mother is in the best care France can offer her. Although the cause of her sudden illness is yet unknown, early indications suggest her sickness is the result of witchcraft, the palace is being locked down. If there is a witch we will find her and have her hanged.

Your Mother does have a theory of who the witch might be but we are not going to disclose that information at such a time as doing so may result in charges brought against both myself and your Lady Mother.

The Duchess requires you at her bedside at once as she fears she may not have long to live.

Yours sincerely

Lady Audrey Pierre, lady to the Duchess of Bourbon
