My name is Phineas Jollybottom. You may not know me, and I apologize for writing you on such a short notice. I am a field zoologist from the Miskatonic university, and I frequently pass by your property while investigating the local fauna. It has come to my attention that one of the cordivae currently roaming in your vicinity exhibit the most peculiar behavior. I consulted with Dr. Armitage, a colleague of mine and we strongly suspect some extraneous influence on the cognitive ability of this specimen.
With your permission, we would like to investigate further and try to capture it for further investigations, Could we arrange a visit from our team to set up some traps around your property? I guaranty you the least intrusive models we have in stock and the utmost discretion from our workers. I took the liberty to join this letter the details of my research on this strange specimen behavior to show you our good will and faith in your interest in science.
Phineas Jollybotton, Pr.
