I write you this script from the North Atlantic, having sailed here aboard my sloop, where the King's Limey's are hot on my trail. I trust the Adventure Prize remains safe but I rest assured it is in the best of hands, yours. I have always trusted you as one of my most loyal and faithful men and that is why I now send you this scroll. It is of the utmost importance that you do not open it as it could mean my life. Carry it with you always. Never give it to a soul no matter the price offered and believe whatever that cost might be, I will double it when I find you. I do not know when I'll be free of these varlets but they will not catch me. People very well may come looking for my scroll. Trust no one.
Head my warnings,
Captain William Kidd
