The unedited note to Random

“Your Majesty,

I spoke with my mother. She says my da was a Navy man calling himself Corby, and that she’s pretty sure that ain’t his real name. Officer material, apparently. She said he was tall, dark, and clean – and that last, that was a selling point, which told me more than I wanted to know about the daft woman’s standards. Also don’t seem to help much, seeing as how I seem to recall that most of the old princes was tall, dark, and clean. I ain’t expecting to get a damn word more on the subject from the stubborn old bitch; maybe someone else would have better luck.
