While the death of my son, Barnabas, is regrettable, the concerns of the shipyard take the higher priority.  Should the plague death be known, the withdrawl from the workforce would be quite untenable, especially in light of the commission by the Spanish.

I must concede to a modicum of regret with regard to our legal interactions, re: inheritance, this has been decided and nothing shall alter that.  As for now, I shall deal with Angelique, whose marriage I may seek to have questioned on legal grounds.

Before his “departure for England,” Barnabas reminisced of my wound from the war.

In the final calculation, I believe that this family may be the lesser for my son’s absence.
