Chief Alchemist Alexandria Hypatia,
I am writing because I am not permitted to visit you in person, thanks to one of the Duke's new decrees, which now fall on the city as frequently as drops of rain. But I will get to the matter at hand.
What is the progress with your research on the latest strain of Bloodfly Fever? Is there any hope for an improved version of Addermire Solution? I'm talking of a remedy that could cure the Fever, instead of just delaying the symptoms. Have any of your experiments proven effective? If so, when will something be available to the community?
As you must know, available stocks of elixirs are dwindling, and people often have to turn to the black market to buy potions at a shocking price. What is your reaction to this situation?
Eagerly awaiting your response,
