I noticed that the spelling in the new notes is getting worse...I wonder if the new members of the Thieves' Guild never attended "The Wonders of Punctuation and Spelling" course... worths a carrot, I think :D

Oh dear
Mr Boggis will not be at all pleased with your comment - oh deary, deary me, not at all pleased.
In fact I had a clacks from a Mr Arthur Spolding (literally department) I think it was something to do with you and, er, Punch-yoo-action.

He might tell more when he writes a receipt............. hopefully.

Another familiar name turned up in my delivery from #41 today...

The Lady Anne (Buggerit) Nielsen.
I must congratulate you on having something worth stealing. Which is rare considering the usual rubbish you buy

Not only the spelling is getting worse, but also the handwriting.
Just had one that looks like Just In Thumpem, 3490/41, oh dear, oh dear. Such a small haul how shall I feed my poor children!

No good deed goes unpunished, I just got one from Miss Heather the Wild :D

Foraging in your little bag was no joke, and so little to show for it. If I were you I would try something else.

Spelling and punctuation perfect, lovely neat handwriting too 8)

Oh dear, oh dear, I thought this young lady had been lost at sea years ago..........

Carol (Quickly) McCollonough :shock: Licensed Thief No. 3330/M4

A small attempt at poetry inscribed in quite tidy handwriting hints at her flirtation with a liberal arts education, but she seems to have missed the lesson on the proper use of the semi-colon. :lol: :lol:

A little haul from you was hardly worth the wait.
I should have guessed as much, your bag was in such a state!
:D

Yet another.

Bugger this, I'm going back to being a seamstress. It's more fun and a girl can make more. But don't bother to call me after what I found in this package."
