To all freeholders and the whole realm of the East send all manner of filial reverence.
We, King Gregor and Queen Kiena, find that among other famous nations our East has been graced with widespread renown. Our most tireless Mistress Mira Fennor of Argyll has and shall ever be, as far as duty calls, ready to do Our will in all things, as an obedient daughter.
She, that her people and her heritage might be delivered out of the hands of our enemies, met toil and fatigue, hunger and peril, like another Macabaeus or Joshua and bore them cheerfully.
Her, too, divine providence, has been made a member of the Order of the
Silver Crescent, her right of succession
according to our laws and customs which we shall maintain to the death. To her,
as to the one by whom striving has been wrought for our people, we are bound
both by law and by her merits that our freedom may be still maintained, and by
her, come what may, we mean to stand. It is in truth not for glory, nor riches,
nor honours that she hath worked, but for our people.
Given at Pantaria, the King’s and Queen’s Equestrian Championship, of the Shire of Panther Vale, on the twenty-fifth day of the month of May in the year of the Society XLVIII of the reign of our King aforesaid.
