For the August 2003 meetings, printed October 31, 2003
To all the College of Arms and all others who may read this missive, from François Laurel, Zenobia Wreath, and Mari Pelican, greetings.
This letter contains the issues raised in the August 2003 LoAR for CoA discussion. The text in this letter is copied verbatim from that LoAR; it is provided here for convenience. As with an October LoI, these matters are currently scheduled for the Laurel meetings in February 2004. Original commentary must be in the College's hands no later than December 31, 2003. Responses and rebuttals to commentary must be in the College's hands no later than January 31, 2004.
Alistair Kirk. Device change. Quarterly argent ermined azure and Or, in bend sinister two compass stars all within a bordure azure.
Both the original blazon and the suggested reblazon had problems that did not correctly indicate the tinctures of the emblazon. Most members of the College did not indicate that this has been checked for conflict under the correct tinctures and therefore it must be pended for further research.
The submitter's previous device, Quarterly ermine and Or, a raven volant sable between in bend sinister two compass stars, all within a bordure azure, is to be retained as a badge if this submission passes.
(This submission was item number 1 on Ealdormere's LoI of April 20, 2003.)
Pierre Vorman de Saint Germain. Device. Quarterly argent and azure, on a bend sable between two double-headed eagles seven Maltese crosses palewise Or.
The tincture of the bend was omitted in the Letter of Intent. Pennon issued a correction on a letter dated June 30, but as this letter was dated on the last day of the primary commentary period, there was no time for the College to provide timely primary commentary on the corrected blazon. This must therefore be pended for future conflict research.
(This submission was item number 11 on Meridies's LoI of April 30, 2003.)
Pray know that I remain
