Except, of course, that the letter he received, which he does know is in her
handwriting, and was written by her, mentions specifically that she was
pregnant and gave birth to two children, Gabriel and Sarah, and we know those
are the names of the two who attacked Peter.
Ferrets, insofar as I can recall, were mentioned nowhere in the letter.
