There are too many people in the library at the moment so I can't speak in case they eavesdrop, hence the need to send you a note.
Now, the last time we chatted I mentioned spies, armies and magic. As spies are fond of using code names I thought that it would be a good idea if I used one when communicating with you. I will call myself 'Shadow Chaser.'
Meanwhile, the research is going well, I have found a lead about a chess playing robot which was created round about 1770. The robot and it's creator traveled round the great nations of Europe allowing access to the most powerful rulers at that time. A lot of the accounts about the chess playing robot mention images and shadows appearing in rooms where the machine was kept. I will investigate this matter next.
Till the next time..The Shadow Chaser
