      Dear Angela

      I hope you will proceed with your efforts to recreate the possible
      appearance and repertoire of a 'raisa' of 'baladi' as she might have
      appeared in the 1790s-1815 timeframe. True, it has little to do with the
      largely military focus of the majority of our re-enactment activity, nor was
      it likely an art form or entertainment seen on the Upper Canadian or
      Michigan frontier. It nonetheless would add a flash of color from the wider
      Napoleonic world that the Invasion of Egypt and the Turkish fascination of
      the age so represent, and which must have touched our shores in one way or

      The Naval Establishment, Crown Forces North America, wishes to extend an
      invitation to you to be a respected guest of the Naval Encampment at any
