My dear Captain Elkin,
I found myself greatly disturbed while reading the news this morning. To hear that your family’s beautiful gardens were destroyed, and in such a terrible blaze, is truly saddening. The loss can only be compounded by the reports of members of your family still missing, and the destruction of your magnificent estate. I greatly enjoyed my visit, and was most taken by the beauty of your grounds. It is said that fire is a cleansing force, burning away impurities. I truly hope you will find a way to look upon this event as a learning experience, and take that forward in your life.
You have my most sincere condolences, and I should very much like to offer you whatever assistance I may provide, whether that be in identifying the cause of the blaze, or working to replace what has been lost. I am most certain many others will also be willing to offer their help.
Faithfully and respectfully,
Lady Liliya Setareh
