London, November 6th, 1605 Edward Crook, Esq. 12 High Street London W8 5SA

Dear Mr Guy Fawkes,

I am your lawyer, appointed to represent you in court. I will come to see you tomorrow in prison to prepare your defence.

Get ready to list the facts. I need to know who your accomplices are, what you did and when you did it. Were there any other attacks planned?

See you tomorrow. Good luck.

Crook Ed.
