Hesse-Fedora requests recognition

As ambassador extraordinaire from the court of His Excellency the Landgraf Bogey von Hesse-Fedora, I bring you the Landgraf's greetings and felicitations.

As many of you know, Landgraf Bogey was recently forced to separate his land from that of his erstwhile liege, the Prince of Hesse-Homburg, due to sartorial differences. The Landgraf has just presented the first standard to his new soldiers, but they will not be ready for the field of battle for some time.

In addition to the troubles affecting Ober-Schweinsberg, I must advise that my prince has called upon the forces of the Kingdom of Germania to protect our land until such time as the Fedoran Army is ready to take the field. That great and gracious King has indeed deployed such a corps.

It has now come to our attention that the Prince of Hesse-Homburg has taken the field with troops flying the flag of the Empress, and that these Imperial forces are converging on our borders.

I entreat the princes, dukes, bishops, electors, and kings here represented to extend immediate diplomatic recognition as a sovereign nation to the Landgraviate of Hesse-Fedora, in the hopes that such recognition will give the Empress and her lackey the Prince of Hesse-Homburg pause, and that they will reflect that force may not be the panacea they expect.

I have, sirs, the honor to be, etc. etc.

Graf Peter von Lorre, Ambassador Extraordinaire of the court of Hesse-Fedora

Alzheim will not afford recognition.

To do so would to admit of the possiblity of the Divisibility of states, an unattractive state of affairs.

Herr v. Horn,

It is with sadness that His Excellency has received your missive of the 19th instant.

Please inform your sovereign that Hesse-Fedora wishes you only the best, and that your Gallian tendencies serve you well in the future.

Your most humble servant,
Lorre, AE
