Letter from Portia

Portia has been having trouble dealing with Brutus as she has sent a letter requesting help dealing with her husband. Portia said to Brutus, "I should not know you, Brutus. Dear my lord, Make me acquainted with your cause of grief." Portia wants Brutus to tell her his problems but he won't talk. So my advice to Portia is keep speaking to him calmly and demonstrate that you care. Try to get Brutus to deal with whatever his problem is so he could act as if nothing ever happened. Brutus is an intelligent man so whatever adversity he has come upon, will be dealt with as long as your there for motivation. It is also best to let him be every now and then because you don't want to fuel something you can't put out.

Letter from Caesar

The almighty Caesar has sent in a letter this week needing advice on how to deal with a jealous friend. In the letter Caesar talks about his jealous friend by saying, " Sleek-headed men and such as sleep a-nights. Yond Cassius has a lean and hungry look. He thinks too much. Such men are dangerous." Caesar speaks of him like a liability and that his actions can cause an outcome that wouldn't be wanted. Caesar also says, " As if he mocked himself and scorned his spirit that could be moved to smile at anything. Such men as he be never at heart's ease." My advice to Caesar is that you should try and talk with him to resolve your problem or if that's not something you wish to do then be very cautious. It is also best not to try to start a conflict but be very professional about what actions you choose to take.

Letter from Mark Antony

Mark Antony sent in a letter wanting advice on how to get his best friend out of the house in order to partake in some entertaining task. Antony states that his friend has been staying in his house for quite some time and won't leave so Antony is very worried of his friend's health. Antony goes on to say that his friend just won't leave the house no matter what goes on. Most events right now going on in Rome doesn't seem to baffle him at all which leaves a lot of room for adversity. Antony just give your friend some space for now because he could be having a troublesome time right now and needs some space. Don't worry everything will fix itself.

Letter from Brutus

Brutus wants to know how to deal with a friend that is way too ambitious. His friend's ambition can destroy Rome so Brutus wants to know how he can deal with the issue. Brutus said, "I have not known when his affections swayed More than his reason. But 'tis a common proof That lowliness is a young ambition's ladder, Whereto the climber upward turns his face." Brutus believes that his friend will use Rome as a stool to come out on top. His friend believes that he can achieve way more than he actually can which can be a problem in the future especially if disagreements start to occur. My advice to you Brutus, try to calm your friend down or think of a solution that could possibly resolve your issue and will insure the safety of Rome.
