Previously, the only subjunctive clauses you encountered were cum clauses (and indirect questions.) Recall that in cum clauses the "cum" was translated as “when, since or because”. Now, operatives, we are going to add another type of subjunctive clause. Consider the following:
Septimus Recentiōs ad prīncipia dūxit ut Agricolae dīcerent.
Septimus lead the Recentiī to the leader's tent in order to speak to Agricola.
Gāius Recentius Bellātor gladium suum strinxit ut tīrōnēs pūgnāret.
Gāius Recentius Bellātor drew his sword in order to fight the henchmen.
Notice how the “ut” that introduced the clause was, in both cases, translated as “in order to.” These subjunctive clauses are called purpose clauses because they indicate the purpose for which an action was accomplished.

Operative, the first section of Mission 20 appears to build up to the prompt you'll find at the end of session 20.1.b: give Agricola some information he can use. To that end, you'll want to be developing a plan of action that you hope Agricola will follow. We think things are rapidly coming to a head here in Britannia, and that it would be well to "blue-sky" some kind of solution to the woes of provincial Roman life. You don't have to come up with Utopia, but we think Agricola might be helped by hearing how you think relations between Rome and the provinces could be improved, especially when there was such a high turn over of governors. Keep in mind that Britannia was established as an imperial proconsular province.
