Arthur, Honored Leader of the Angles
I thank you for your response to my letter. And I also thank you for your patience with my lack of history and my lack of familiarity with affairs of diplomacy.
To start with, I can appreciate the concerns of your fishermen and sailors. This channel that separates us can either be a dividing line, or an element that binds us. I would prefer the latter. Therefore, we do not deny any Angle sailor or fisherman access to Gallic coastal areas. I have asked my foreign affairs officers to draw up an open borders agreement to make this official. Unfortunately they have not heard of such a concept. The Neandors have mastered this idea, but we have no way of accessing their research. As soon as the Angles or the Gauls have the ability to write up such a document, I will be pleased to sign it.
I also appreciate your promise to not invade or attack Gallic lands or troops. If your declaration of war allows your sailors the freedom they require to sail our waters, we can maintain that state of affairs until a formal open borders agreement is signed.
I look forward to the day when we can meet in person, and discuss the future, and how our two great nations can work together.
With Respect and Sincerity... Princess Joan I of the Gaul Tribes
