There are three distinct versions of this letter in three different locations.
- Mistveil Keep - Anuriel's room
- Given to the Dragonborn by Gabriella on the Dark Brotherhood questline to plant on Gaius Maro's body.
- The description in this text refers to the Jarl as "Lalia Law-Giver", however, this is a typo, as her name is Laila Law-Giver.
Incriminating Letter 1Edit
The Jarl has shown great wisdom in choosing you as her steward. A position well befitting your character, as it demands great cunning, grace, and, shall we say, a talent for performing one's duties tactfully and discreetly.
You have become an important asset to our operation. I trust you found the dress accompanying this letter to your satisfaction. Remember, as I flourish, so too will my friends.
However, I wish to remind you of your pledge to prevent Honningbrew deliveries from entering the city. I am also still waiting for the detachment of city guards to escort my merchandise. I understand it can take time navigating around the delicate sensibilities of your mistress, the great Lalia Law-Giver, but really, I've waited long enough.
Provided you continue to serve my interests, I will continue to look after yours.
I trust I'll be hearing from you soon.
Incriminating Letter 2Edit
I agree to your conditions. When the Emperor arrives, I will pass along his schedule, and arrange for all doors to be unlocked, and any posted security to be conveniently absent for a small period of time.
Leave the first payment, in gold, at this dead drop.
I look forward to continuing our relationship.
Incriminating Letter 3Edit
<Jarl> has shown great wisdom in choosing you as his/her Steward. A position well befitting your character, as it demands great cunning, grace, and, shall we say, a decided talent for performing one's duties tactfully and with much discretion.
The Jarl wasn't acting in his/her best interest by turning down my gracious offer. But you were able to see past his/her short-sightedness. In the end, I'm quite sure the Jarl will thank you for your cleverness in this matter.
I am in your debt. Commensurate with your continued cooperation, I grant you a boon.
It is only a matter of time before our efforts bear fruit.
