My Dear Marina,
A rumor has come to me; I hope you can disprove it. I hear that Octavimus is planning to leave, to run from his obligations. We both know what a mistake that would be. You need to talk him out of it.
I say this for your health and for his. We both know what will happen if Octavimus leaves. And how could you think of leaving all your friends and the life of the city? I can't believe you would do that.
Don't force my hand here, Marina. It won't be pleasant for anyone. So be a good wife and see that Octavimus stays put.
