Letter to Lady Macbeth from her husband. Whilst Banquo and I were on a heath near Forres, we came across three, peculiar weird sisters.

Extracts from this document...


Dear Lady Macbeth, It has been a long time since I have seen you and I am missing you terribly. I hope that you are well. I am coping fine but I have been through quite a lot of trouble in a short space of time. Please let me inform you of my perturbed state and the strange, strange things I have encountered.
