Summary Iserloan has received a letter from someone who identifies himself only as a "brother." The letter warns Iserloan that Hubard is doing all he can to make him appear black and will send him to hell if he can. A comparison of other writings in his possession leads Iserloan to conclude that the letter was sent by Jonathan Schaffer. He asks Simmons to peruse the letter and provide whatever advice he deems appro[priate].
