Letter written by the dwarf Vivaldi to Yaevinn the elf.
- Dear Yaevinn!
- I will graciously overlook the tone of your letter. Your query was simple, and thus my answer will be. I believe your enterprise to be adolescent and harmful both to elves and dwarves. To use the language of financiers, I cannot extend credit towards its pursuit. To use your boys' language: I have naught and shall give not, and what is more I would not give even if I had any.
