A scrawled report from Scout Ringo:
To: princez Tresur
it is wit gret reliefe I send you this message.
My understanding is the carrier buddi bunny sent you a report sez I was runing edge of happylandz. This is true. When I getz to de end, there is huge grassy place, called a prairie. Dere is a path of daizees and it seemd good idea to follow it. After middle day, I feelz shadow on me and look up. It was a hawk, a gigantious hawk . I admitz I scared. Widout a den or hidey-hole I freeze. I stay freezed till sunset last night.
Finly I move. i start on daizee path agin. I see chipmunk who excape hawk. It says I lucky ‘cuz usually hawk don’t miss big target like me. Chipmunk gives me water and nutz and directions for shortcut to happenstanc.
I just arrived happenstance; I admit I lost a ring on my tail from scare. First thing I do is write you. Den I talk to Teddi. he seems nice chap. He tell me I not too far from Utah. So hopefully mission not delayed. Still hope to arrive on 23 and have sumit on 24th.
Is too bad I loze fancy meeting suit on way.
Your loyal scout,
