"All heralds are reminded that their job in non-
political. By this, we mean that your personal likes
and dislikes should not enter into the job. You may
think that a person, or a group is nothing but a bunch
of good for nothing perverts. . . . but this shall not
become a part of your considerations as a herald. You
will register devices solely on their heraldic
acceptability and on no other consideration. "
Until next month, pray believe that I am, and remain,
Your faithful servant,
Jaelle of Armida
