"You're a traveler, right? I have this letter for him. Let him know how much of a failure he is."
Rogatus Salvius[src]

Rogatus's Letter is a quest available in The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim in which the Dragonborn must deliver a letter to Leontius Salvius from his father Rogatus to help mend their strained relationship.


  1. Deliver Rogatus's letter to Leontius


Salvius Farm is a small farm that includes a windmill just outside of Markarth. Rogatus Salvius can be found outside working in his garden. After speaking to him, he will inform the Dragonborn of his strained relationship with his son, Leontius Salvius. He asks them to deliver a personal letter to Leontius at Old Hroldan Inn.

Old Hroldan Inn can be found east of Markarth; it is near a bunch of Forsworn encampments, and can be a dangerous journey if coming directly from Markarth at a low level. Leontius Salvius usually can be found chopping wood or walking around outside during daylight. When night approaches, he can be found inside the Inn. They are rewarded with 25 septims for completing the quest.

  • After conversing with Leontius, the letter may become stuck in your inventory marked as a quest item.

Trying to pickpocket the letter onto Leontius while he is still alive will be unsuccessful.
