I assume Gamlen's told you nothing about me. I ask after you every time I visit him, and all I get is, "You've heard it all from the town criers." Dear old dad.
I hope this letter finds you well. I hear stories, but I can't tell what's true and what's exaggerated. Did you really fistfight the Qunari leader? Are you actually sleeping with the captain of the city guard? Did you slay a dragon in Darktown? It can't all be true!
It is exciting to hear the stories and say, "That's my cousin!" Write to me, and tell me how you've been. I want news! I'll trade you incriminating gossip about your favorite uncle.
