Her Majesty summoned before her Simon Fjarfell and spoke of his efforts in the realm of Embroidery, despite his young age. Noting that such efforts deserved recognition, Simon was named a companion of the Silver Sycamore.  Scroll by Ekaterina Volkova.

The autocrat of the event, Don Mateo Pesci was invited before Her Majesty. Don Mateo addressed the populace, and thanked those artisans and teachers who had come forward to assist in the day’s Metalworking symposium, making special note of Master John Michael Thorpe’s contributions.

Her Majesty then declared that she would have words with Master John the Pell. Summoned by such authority, Master John found his seat no longer willing to contain him, and thus he came before the Sylvan Queen.  Her Majesty noted that His Majesty had wished to be in attendance, but mundane concerns had detained him, and thus she read the words of His Majesty to Master John.  Master John’s many years of service to Kingdom and Society were laid plain by the words of the Sylvan King.  So speaking, and so reading, Her Majesty then did summon the Noble order of the Pelican, and issue a writ of summons to Master John, that he attend Their Majesties at Pennsic, and answer whether or not he would accept elevation to said order. To further add to the moment, The Honorable Lady Gytha Oggsdottir was invited to read a letter for Master John and the populace, sent by former members of the Populace of Myrkfaelinn, in support of Master John’s elevation.  Upon accepting the writ, Master John returned to his place among the populace, and seated himself upon the ground.

Her Majesty then spoke of the day’s beautiful weather and of the many beautiful works and noble combats she had witnessed throughout. Being especially moved by the efforts of Lady Máirghréad Stíobhard inghean uí Choinne, Her Majesty did present Lady Máirghréad with her token of inspiration.

There being no further business, Her Majesty’s Court was closed.
