I have received the letters and placed them with the others. I hope that they are not all we have to show for our efforts in the end.
I wish I had news regarding the necklace. I took it to the woman as you requested, but she was not able to divine anything new, at least nothing we would share with me. I have continued to examine it carefully, but nothing new has been revealed beyond the marks we have already studied.
Do not give up hope. We may find Derek yet and be able to have the resolution we so desire.
Please do not hesitate to share any new information. The most insignificant detail could open the door for us. Tom sends his regards, and suggests you mend the jacket.
