Not all letters of intent may be considered when they are originally scheduled on this cover letter. The date of mailing of the LoI, date of receipt of the Laurel packet, or other factors may delay consideration of certain letters of intent. Additionally, some letters of intent received may not have been scheduled because the administrative requirements (receipt of the forms packet, receipt of the necessary fees, et cetera) have not yet been met.

REMINDER: Until all administrative requirements are met, the letter may not be scheduled.

From Pelican: On Gruffudd, Welsh Names for Children

The revised version of Appendix H of the Administrative Handbook omits a few sources that were previously on the list of books which do not require photocopies to Laurel. One such book is Gruffudd, Welsh Names for Children. This book is about modern names and provides only modern forms, even of names which are dated to our period. At one time, this book was one of the best references we had for Welsh given names, but this is no longer the case. Because the forms given in Gruffudd are explicitly modern, it is no longer acceptable as sole documentation for Welsh names.

Society Pages

We would like to congratulate Lady Constance Wyatt, Town Crier Pursuivant of An Tir, who received her Award of Arms on July 3, and the elevation of Druinne de Salesbury, former Star Principal Herald, to the Order of the Pelican on July 11.

Two other heralds have reached noteworthy milestones since the publication of the last LoAR. Congratulation to Dame Ursula Georges, Loyall Herald, on the successful defense of her Ph.D. in June, and to Baroness Wencenedl of Rokesburg, Bucina Herald of Ealdormere, on the birth of her son Alexander James on July 12.
