The saga of the internal mountain
Compiled by offramp

I heard you out there listening; we must come to some decision. Sit down. I have been office tonight to get my letters. From these it appears that you have been keeping back my mail, both coming and going. The consequence that the loss of time has as good as destroyed the result I expected. In consequence of all this I have intercepted letters addressed to myself. It appears from these letters that for some time past you have be old friends against me by spreading reports about my mental health. You have succeeded in your efforts, for now not more than one from the King, down to the lowliest pawn, who believes that I am sane are the facts about my illness; my mind is sound, as you know, and I take care of my duties in the service as well as my responsibilities to others. My feelings are more or less under my control, as my will has now been completely undermined; but you have gnawed and nibbled at it soon until I slip the cogs, and then the whole mechanism will stop forever.
