We will cheerfully dispatch young Hielegekinde to attend as our representative. We don't want to expose the young Urpprinz to the cold of a winter's journey ...

To their Graces, he Duke and Duchess of Tradgardland and Schwartz - Tradgardland.

It is with regret that his Grace, The Duke of Clove-Hamhock must decline your kind invitation. This is due to current state of affairs within the Duchy of Clove-Hamock due to the influx of refugees and the training they are now undergoing after being impressed into the armed forces of the duchy. Their Graces might also consider admonishing Erik von Althavn- Trezbisond with regard to the proper use of honorifics when refering to their Graces, unless of course their Graces are now the King and Queen of Tradgardland and Schwartz – Tradgardland (}~D).

For His Grace, Wilhelm Fredrick von Servens
