<Most of the pages of this book are missing. The title page begins with these words:>
may the Eight watch over them and their child, Alain
may the Divines protect us all
<The second page has a note scrawled in red ink.>
The Divines are a lie. There's no one watching over us. Our baby is dead, the food is gone, and the bears are at my door. I saw Hubert killed right before my eyes. I'd rather die peacefully than be torn apart.
There's naught left to drink but poison. May my soul be released from its suffering.
