Dear Victim,

I regret to inform you that your original assassin was no longer able to continue in HA for personal reasons and sent her hat on to her assassin, who due to the deft work of my 1st victim, was not able to even begin work on the 2nd hat.   My hat found its way to my first victim just as she was finishing her victim's unfinished hat and so the lovely autumny yarn chosen by your original assassin arrived at my door in the form of half a hat, which regretably, was much too big.  Several days later…your hat is fit to kill.  Your days are numbered.  Prepare to die.

Best Wishes,

Substitute assassin #3
