Found this while I was telnetting around in an obscure corner of the Vatican
Library last week<grin>. Looks like freelancers' problems haven't changed
much in the last 2000 years.

Subj: FINAL NOTICE

All right, guys; what gives?

The contract for my last lecture tour clearly stated that you would pay a
reasonable honorarium, as well as renting the hall, hiring the audience, and
providing scribes to copy the handouts.

I've sent you two copies of the invoice, and I haven't seen hide nor hair of
the $$$ you owe me. BTW, a couple of beers does not equal a 'reasonable
honorarium'. Fun is fun, but I do this for a _living_.

I strongly suggest that you pay up soon. If I don't get your check (or money
order, or bags of silver, or whatever) by the next available messenger, I'll
be forced to turn the account over to the Friendly Apostles Collection
Agency.

Sincerely yours,
Paul
