Item 401: Letter found among the brickwork during renovation of government buildings

Our new leader has terrible plans.
I overheard him while I was cleaning the office next to his. I left as quietly as I could but there was a guard outside his door and my efforts to appear hard of hearing were pitiful.

I hear their footsteps on the stairs.
God save us all.
