For the May 2004 meetings, printed October 26, 2004

To all the College of Arms and all others who may read this missive, from Shauna Laurel, Evan Wreath, and Margaret Pelican, greetings.

This letter contains the issues raised in the May 2004 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 2005. Original commentary must be in the College's hands no later than December 2004. Responses and rebuttals to commentary must be in the College's hands no later than January 2005.

  1. Not applicable. No action.

    Note for the electronic version: the LoPaD that was printed and mailed was generated slightly before the final May LoAR. Item 1 on the printed LoPaD was for an item accepted in the final printed LoAR, so that item was not actually pended and no further commentary is needed. This is placeholder text to ensure that Lochloinn's pended device is numbered 2 in the electronic version of the LoPaD, as it was on the printed version.

  2. Lochloinn samhach mac Griogair. Device. Per chevron azure and ermine, in base a tower vert, in canton a falcon rising wings displayed argent.

    The Letter of Intent blazoned this as Per chevron azure and ermine, in canton a falcon rising, wings elevated and displayed argent, in base a tower vert. This blazon led commentors to believe that the charges were co-primary; that is not the case. The tower is the sole primary charge on this emblazon, with the falcon clearly a secondary; we have reblazoned it accordingly. The evidence suggests that this was not checked for conflict under the correct interpretation. We are, therefore, pending this device so that it may be checked for conflict as a single primary charge with a secondary charge in canton.

I remain
