Thank you for the advance copy of your book \"How to Lie, Cheat, Deceive, and Influence People\". Using the decoder template in the back and applying it to the Abydos post 22244, I came up with the following:
Oh shit, I've been found out and I'm gonna get racked in the public board. Please, please don't do this. What do I do, what do I do ? Perhaps I can try a little deflection.
I've got to come up with some plausible bullshit to explain why I've abused my city authorities, ruined my credibility, and hurt my friends and allies all because I had a personal moment. Give me a few days, ok?
Oh man, I think I just screwed myself big time.
Written by my hand on the 22nd of Ilmarael, in the year 1148.
