(( Letters, letters, roly-poly letters... The visit to Mathieus is not all that important: if we go straight to Confluensis from Mons Electi, it's only about a 10-hour trip. Only reason we're stopping is because Stultus rather likes Mathieus and wants to visit with the man. Maybe run the playhouse idea past him.))
I hope this letter finds you well. I have a small favor to ask.
Myself and a sodalis (Fiona ex Miscellanea, a great friend of mine and a true giant among magi) shall be traveling to Confluensis on Insert-Date-Here; myself to take part in a Tytalus competition, her to [strike]point and laugh[/strike] observe it. We would like to request the hospitality of Eboris for a night; we would also wish to impose on you further by requesting your presence at dinner, in order to catch up, exchange news, and partake of the fruits of Mons Electi's vineyards. Please let us know whether this plan is acceptable to you.
--Stultus Maximus ex Tytalus"
Cumhachd's language was probably used in order to goad me, goad you, or both. I wouldn't put either past the woman. Regardless, I shall be pleased to attend and to assist you in your task. It promises to be quite amusing.
I shall be bringing a sodalis with me; she wishes to observe Tytali 'in the wild'. I humbly request accomodations for her, with extra-large and sturdy furniture if possible -- she is quite physically imposing. An extra-large and sturdy bed would be particularly appropriate.
My thanks for the invitation, and I look forward to speaking with you in person.
--Stultus Maximus ex Tytalus, filius Cumhachd
During the rather memorable dinner with the residents of Mons Electi, you mentioned your research, and a number of people suggested a deeper investigation of Aristotle's Metaphysics.
I do not remember whether I mentioned it at the time, but I have a friend -- Huguet Zorzi, a Canon at Notre Dame Cathedral. He is thoroughly mundane, and does NOT know that I am a magus. However, he does happen to be an authority on Aristotle's writings, and is a very intelligent man. If you wish to create a mundane identity for yourself, and write to him asking some questions about the Aristotelian view of the world, I shall be pleased to relay the letter when I visit Paris. You may wish to mention a scholar named Jaufre of Barcelona: that is the identity he knows me under.
