'''Correspondence Interruptus''' is a quest from the [[Favors for Certain Interested Parties]] board. "R" has a small request. "It's always useful to have a big name in your pocket, and there's nothing better than snagging them with their knickers down. If, in travels wide, someone were to come across notes between illicit lovers, I have certain specialists who can make the most of the texts." As you travel, keep an eye out for 12 of these notes. Bring twelve of them to the well-connected bartender for a reward.

* Sometimes, even after all twelve letters have been acquired, there will only be ten or eleven in the player's inventory, rendering the quest impossible to complete. The cause of this is unknown. The only solution to this is to enable the [[Console (Origins)|Console]] and manually add the 11th and 12th letters into your inventory. (PC only.)
