Diplomats Away...

Detlev walked to each man grasped his hand and offered his thanks and prayers for their safe voyage. Upon reaching the end of the line Detlev turned and spoke to the assembled diplomats, "always remember, you represent Cavenderia, every action you take and every word you speak reflects upon our people, yours is a most important task." Detlev continued. "you are his lordship's voice in your new foster homelands and his ears in the courts. You have each been selected for your social graces and eloquent speech, serve Cavenderia proudly and enjoy your new posts." Detlev gave the ambassadors a tip of his hat, turned to the dragoons present and said, "Protect these men as you would the Prinz himself." The crisp spring green coats and rose cuffs of the dragoons' uniforms contrasted with the snow fall upon the ground creating a memorable scene for the young artist observing and putting to memory this image for a future canvas. "You are Cavenderia's first diplomats, represent her well and report often of the events you observe, Godspeed to you all."

A stirring speech indeed, and a wonderful entry into our imaginary world.
