Well soon the whole thing will be on line, but for now ...
We, Lyriel, the Lady by the Lily marked, and Fernando, the Ritter by the
Falcon armed; by sword, law, and custom serving the people of Calontir as
their Sovereigns, and the Land of the Falcon as its Lady and Lord, do greet
all bound to Us, and order these words to be accredited in all places of
As the Chivalry defends the just and ancient freedoms of Our folk, and the
Pelikan renders all things possible in service, so too do Our artisans and
entertainers enrich Our subjects. It is both Our duty and Our delight to
paint in brightest colors, and to deck with gold and precious Honors, those
who by their efforts have jeweled Our courts and halls in seemly merriment.
Such a one is Conrad Martin von Kassel, who has by the disport of dancing
taught Our people to meet in modest and sober entertainment, and also has
provided virtuous exercise in place of less worthy pastimes. We are
therefore minded to advance, elect and prefer him to the Order of the
Laurel, and to account him a Peer of Our realm, equal in honors to any who
have not borne the burdens of rule.
Given under Our hands and seals, this 24th day of the 10th month of the
thirty-fifth year of the Society, it being February 24th, 2001 in the Roman
reckoning, Our Falcon Thrones being set in Our Barony of Three Rivers.
