“There’s no doubt that this person deals with either accounting documents or ledgers frequently. This person could be a grand chamberlain for a territory, or they could be a merchant that works in a high position.”

“Is that so……”

Barbatos made a wry face as she looked down at the letter.

“Hm? How?”

I smiled smoothly.

“I told you. Merchants are my friends.”
