"Dear Brother Dominick,

I hope my letter finds you well. It’s been a long time since our last communication. Too long, as always...

My friend, I fear I have made a terrible mistake! By the time you read this letter I will be dead. Even as I write, my life is forfeit.

These documents I am sending you I’ve obtained at great peril to myself. Perhaps to all of us. But beyond a shadow of a doubt I do believe they are worth it.
They are fragments of Dr. Valdi’s notes taken during her research on the Village of Madmen. They predate the completed manuscript by years, perhaps decades! You understand the significance of this fact.

I’ve had very little time to study them, but even so I’ve learned so much! This Colombina character is of particular interest. You’ll see why, I’m sure.

There is something that keeps bothering me, though... Something missing. It’s as if Dr. Valdi left something out on purpose. As if the thread connecting it all has been left out. Or perhaps removed after the fact?

I have failed my mission, Brother Dominick. And by my failure my mission has become yours. I beg of you: do not be blinded by thirst for revenge! You know what’s at stake. Study the manuscripts! They might be our only hope.

Yours sincerely,
Sister Josephine”
