As my dear friend and colleague, N Antonius Paullus has stated, I am taking a leave of absence from the Fora due to my mother's death. I am only 23 and I have to sort out everything - this is the reason for my prolonged disappearance, so I ask for your pardon.
I am not leaving office nor do I plan on neglecting my duties to you, however, my appearance will be sporadic. I hope you do forgive me. The support I have received from friends and friends-passed that I have made within the Republic have truly helped me and I extend my warmest and deepest thanks. The Republic has been my home for almost a year now and I could not have asked for a better one.
Long live our Republic, and long live our virtue.
May the gods and ancestors smile upon you and our Republic,
C Cassia Longina
