for I see the plot
thickening. I hope I may prove a false prophet, but I fear the catastrophe is
even now only too near. So when you can no longer shut your eyes to what is
happening, when you do not need me or someone else to tell you, but can all see
for yourselves and be quite certain that all this is directed against you, then
I expect you will be angry and exasperated.
