"How long until the Siguri come?" Wil asks, remembering Cyrward's request.
"The troops from Ashton will be here in a few days," Eadric says. "Da asked for them because people are upset over Dunstan. Everyone liked him. But the main force will take longer because they come from Jossport. Maybe two weeks?" He turns to Wil again. "So I don't have long! Please, Wil, I need your help! I have to talk to Cyrward!"
Wil sighs, and gives in. "If you give me a letter, I will make sure it gets to him. Write it yourself, don't use a scribe."
"I'm not stupid!" Eadric snaps.
