It seems like only yesterday we were watching young Empress Emily launch that magnificent ship in honor of her late mother, gone these fifteen years. A beautiful vessel, built by your hand. We were so proud.
Since the Coup, I've been worrying what will become of the ISS Jessamine Kaldwin. There's been rioting here, and angry citizens are defacing her statues. For now, the ship sits, waiting in Dunwall Harbor. There are no orders coming from Dunwall Tower.
I hope you and Philly are well and that things are calmer in Karnaca, but rumors indicate otherwise.
Your cousin and friend,
