Mat and Thom arrive in Caemlyn. Mat seems very impressed by it's scale, and maybe more so by it's wealth. Thom of course, heads straight to the Queen's Blessing, but Mat rides to the palace eager to be rid of Elayne's letter to Morgase. Mat's first attempt is foiled, however. It seems that most of the old Palace guards have been replaced by a group of rough and incompetent men, who are more keen to argue or fight with him than receive any official letter. We'll find out later that this was the work of Rahvin. Plan B is to climb the garden wall that Rand told him about months ago. Mat sneaks through the Palace's gardens and right up to some occupied rooms, while waiting for a guard to walk past him, he overhears two men speaking about Egwene, Nynaeve, and Elayne. One is instructing the other to assassinate the hunters three. Just as he is considering walking into one of the doors, Tallanvor, one of Morgase's last loyal men, steps out of it. How lucky for Mat Cauthon. Morgase speaks in a type of cypher, Mat recognizes Gaebril's voice as one of the insidious planners from earlier, and Mat manages to deliver the letter. Now all mat has to do is travel thousands of miles to Tear and save his friend's lives, nbd.
