The Song of Mars
HER MAJESTY’S CROWN COLONY OF SYRTIS MAJOR
is advised to be vigilant. All members of the Colonial Office must be made aware of the situation on the ground. The Worms and other organizations of this nature have been extremely active of late. None of us here at home would like to see a repeat of the events of ’57 in the Company territories of India.
Additionally, we have reason to believe that there is maneuvering going on here at home and abroad amongst the great colonial powers. This despatch should serve as a reminder that it is not only the native Martian folk we must be wary of. In particular, please pay close attention to the High Martians and their liftwood sales.
