I thank you for your apology, though I demanded none and didn't expect one.
I must say, I didn't do anything to protect Lamothe, but allowed the Thakrian
process to run its own course, though some appeared to think otherwise.
The ruling posted by Lord Arthor is that no member of my order shall be
allowed to retain Thakrian citizenship. I think this clearly states that
Lamothe was thrown out purely because of her individual beliefs and choices.
You say she made poor decisions and ultimately hurt the city and its members.
Well, I disagree, she did what she could when she was ejected from her
positions for being in my order (no other reason) and any hurt that came to
the city was through actions of others. In fact, I would go so far as to say
that I believe these aren't even your own words from your own observance of
the course of matters. They couldn't be as you are fully aware of the facts.
I believe you voice the opinion of another who was not present during the
sequence of events discussed and saw the harm that has been done to Thakria
by this contrevercial decision and, along with many, has decided to blame Lamothe
for their own failings.
I repeat, I accept your apology, but I did not ask for a public apology or
expect one. If any of your comrades who also accused me of interference and
misled you on the matter care now to stand up and be counted also, then I might
think more highly of them. Then again, I might not.
Written by my hand on the 24th of Hindyear, in the year 1040.
