It strikes me truly amazing that you have survived this long. Which is no slander on you, Captain... I was merely beginning to think that all my assistants were cursed. Superstitious nonsense, of course, but we do see patterns in the chaos from time to time. The hand of God, perhaps?
Bah. Such thoughts are better left to the philosophers. I have some cleaning up to do here. You, on the other hand, have nothing more to learn from this old codger. I release you from any obligation you might feel towards me for this tutelage. It was my pleasure to broaden your education.
Please give my regards to Ms. Purcell. She has been most obliging.
