A mysterious missive…

With the exception of monthly subscription despatch, all has been curiously quiet on the Enchanted front for the last couple of months. So it was with interest that we investigated a mysterious missive that made its way to us all the way from the Real World.  The only name provided for the sender was simply Snout.  We are suspicious. Surely not correspondence from one of the notorious Pygg Brothers (Pygg the Elder, Pygg the Younger and Pygg in the Middle, proprieters of the dubious property rental outfit Pygg Lets, recently seen in court pitted against none other than Mr. B. B. Wolf)?  If so, why the pseudonym – ‘snout’ surely being somewhat ‘on the nose’, so to speak?  Or perhaps it is an elaborate double bluff – but in any case, why?
