The labors and skills of a scribe with quill and ink, gold and silver, parchment and paint, and the selfless sacrifice of their time, is a benefit to Crown and recipient alike, and to all those who seek beauty. Always may the hand of the scribe who chooses to serve An Tir be as the strong hand of the King and their eyes be as those of the Queen who seeks out all that is beautiful. Make the heart of that scribe as the heart of the Sable Lion, true and sure.
