Dear The Travel Agent 9000,
I would like to thank you for the offer of settling our civlization in your river valley, but I am afraid that we will have to decline. The region known as the Fertile Crescent is far nicer then the Pech River Valley offer you are proposing. Even though there is more land in your river valley, the fertile soil in the Fertile Crescent is far superior to any land we have looked at to this day. Also, the Euphrates and Tigris rivers allow us much river front for farming, and will prosper our nation for years to come. If we get taken over by barbarians or over run by another civilization, I will be sure to send you a telegram.
