Appreciation Of Banquet
Knights, Gentlemen and Serfs ... on behalf of the Ladies I thank thee
for the magnificent banquet you gave in our honour.
The victuals were delicious, the decorations impressive
and the entertainment by the minstrels excellent. T'was a pity
that a few miscreants had to be confined to the stocks for cracking
Apart from them we congratulate you for restricting your
intake of Mead, refraining from using lewd language, spitting or making
attacks on my ladies virtue, although I had counselled them to keep
both legs in one garter.
With the aid of the apothecaries my Lord George is now
recovering from his attack of the vapours but regrets he will be unable
to launch any vessels for the next month or so.
