I apologize for leaving without your knowledge, but the goddess who loved my father has set forth a plan for me.  I have set sail in search of news of my father, be he alive or in the world of the dead.  That I have never known my father troubles me so, and though I am assured he was a great man, I must find out for myself if he was great enough to survive so long away from us.

Pylos will be my temporary home as I search for answers.   I will be gone no more than a year.  When I return, I have vowed to address the issue of the suitors that plague you.

                     Your son, Telemachus
