From the Archives of the Curiosa Society. Transcript of Correspondence 30.10.19: Letter from T. Grimsby to Society Members in absentia


Dearest Society Member,

I write to you on the eve of my departure in search of artefacts related to the history of our beloved Curiosa Society.

As you may know, recent Society activities began in the summer of 2017, but, in actuality, the Curiosa Society itself can trace its roots back to the late 1500s and the earliest explorations of the New World. Our Society archives have only fragments of the ancient New World declaration (from which we have adapted our modern charter), but I believe a complete copy must exist somewhere amongst the ruins of the old Society.

In addition, documents recently unearthed by curiosos H— and S— point to another potential branch of the Society in the United Kingdom and even an ancestral branch in Egypt, but I’m getting a bit ahead of myself. First, I must tackle the origins of the Curiosa Society in the New World and investigate what has now commonly been dubbed “the Lost Colony”. I’ve only heard rumours and exaggerated fiction in regards to what may have befallen the early inhabitants, but I have faith that our Society ancestors may have left clues as to where they established their archive in the New World.

I have instructed H— and S— to update the Curiosa Society Archives to include all future correspondences and any analysis of relics or documents I may send back from my travels. That way, we may work together in unlocking the history of our storied Society.

To this end, I encourage all Members to remain vigilant and keep the Curiosa Society ideals in their minds, for we are the caretakers of the strange and curious and we exist for the discovery and preservation of extraordinary things. Ah— here comes my taxi.

Yours Faithfully,

Thelonious Grimsby
