Dear NewGoldTooth Subscribers,
I actually got a letter back, and although it is an automated response it needs to be printed for two reasons:

It shows again that these letters are actually being sent. Otherwise, it’s not too exciting. Without further explanation, here is Part II of “The Pawns Keep Crawling off the Board”
The game of chess has been played for millennia. A relatively recent way to play is by correspondence. Two contestants keep their own boards current from distant locations and transmit their next move via e-mail or letters. Interestingly enough, each player starts with eight pawns. I mean seriously, this metaphor writes itself…

Well done indeed! Your last gambol isolated the king, and kept him out of play! However, I still have a few tricks up my sleeve. I withdraw my castle, leaving your queen high and dry. How do you like that one? And I still have eight pawns, which I will leave precisely where they are: way out in front. They’re at great risk, but they certainly make great bargaining chips, don’t they?
I can’t wait to see your next move.
