Friar Lawrence Letter
Dear Lord Capulet and Lord Montague,
I have come to your attention to clear things up with the feud your two families are having. I need to address the reasons why your families shouldn't be in this argument. There are more reasons than the ones that have been stated in this letter, but I can only fit so much. One of the 3 reasons is that there have been deaths because of this feud, that shouldn't be happening. Another reason that it is disturbing the peace and the citizens in this town. The last reason is that the Capulets and the Montagues have absolutely no reason at all to be fighting, unnecessary negativity. I will explain all these reasons in detail so that the two families are clear in why this useless feud needs to end.
One of the reasons your two families shouldn’t be fight is because we don’t need anymore unnecessary deaths in the town. In Act 3 Scene 1, Mercutio AND Tybalt die. Tybalt challenges Romeo to duel, Mercutio takes romeos place and in the fight, tybalt stabs mercutio and he dies. Then, in anger, romeo kills Tybalt, and he also dies. If you weren't in an argument there would be no reason for them to fight against each other so therefore none of them would have died like this. If your two families don't stop this, there will be more deaths and more deaths.
The last reason to why this feud should’ve already ended because it’s disturbing the peace of the citizens. The prince says: “Have thrice disturbed the quiet of our streets, And made Verona’s ancient citizens, Cast by their grave-beseeming ornament” (1.1.93-95). He is explaining to you that your fight is getting to the citizens and it’s no longer a private problem. Since you have argued publicly, the citizens have acted out in response to the fight. The prince warns your two families that this isn't to happen again and it’s STILL happening, and it’s still disturbing the peace of our citizens.
The past is in the past, there is no reason for your two families...
