I didn't propose the merger, I got an email saying that you rejected the merger. This must have been instigated by a third party who saw the similarity of the names. At the time Charles was using the older form of the name while his brother Peter was using 'Manaige." The older name was, as Kinzie pointed out, subject to the pun "ma nègre" or "mon nègre", "my negro," which is not something that you want your boss to be jokingly referring to you behind your back. Also, nobody contacted me about the merger when I should have been a party to the negotiations. Do you know how I can contact the person who proposed the merger?

Manaige-12 and Manaigre-12 do not represent the same person because: Charles b.1828 is Edward's uncle - his father's brother.
