You family does have quite the history regarding trade, so your services are welcome. Representation in the TPTC may help us better communicate, for I feel the Crown has been somewhat responsible for allowing the recent pirate attacks to occur on your father's, and now your, company. Our agreement stipulated that the Crown help patrol the trade routes and we failed. I shall ensure that the royal navy make a sweep down the west coast of Africa for any pirates that remain.

Thank you for trusting me the same way as you did trust my father. I will do everything that I can in my power to make sure that Aragonese trade will flourish. I also wish to thank you for sending ships to fight off the pirates. I also find it suspicious that the pirates are running rampage, but the ATC, which needs to follow the same routes, prospers. But I do not want to point fingers at anyon until I gather more information on the matter. As for my plan for the Grandmaster position I do not think it needs any changes. My father certainly knew what he was doing.
