I am somewhat dismayed at the apparent borders of your nation. You would have Mercia include what is present day Lincolnshire, when infact Lincolnshire is part of the nation of East Anglia and a land of Viking settlers, unlike your Anglo-Saxon nation.
The truth of the matter is that the people of Lincolnshire are quite different from your nation, in fact our language and culture are very different from those of the interior lands you call Mercia. We have a proud agricultural tradition and share close links with the other East Anglian regions, those that the Wessex conspirators call Bedfordshire, Cambridgeshire, Essex, Hertfordshire, Lincolnshire, Norfolk and Suffolk.
East Anglia would be happy to recognise your claim to freedom from the Southern Imperialists, but we reject your claim to the lands east of the Trent, that is land sovereign of the people of East Anglia and the Anglians will fight for it should you dispute that. We have been forced to tolerate rule by Wessex, by the houses of York and Lancaster. Even when Henry of Bolinbrook became King of England, East Anglia still did not see freedom, nor under the rule of our son Olivier Cromwell did the Low lands of the east become free. But should we be forced to accept rule by Mercia, the people of East Anglia would be silent no longer...
