The General Deputation of Catalonia -institution currently ruling that Principality while our Emperor & King Charles takes a final decision on the Viceroyalty office- is pleased to know the decision of His Royal Majesty King Stépan II.

His Imperial & Royal Majesty Charles VI (III) representatives in the Galatan Confederation [Marquis of Rubí as Viceroy of Majorca, Count of Erill as Viceroy of Sardinia, as well as Lady Elisenda Folch de Cardona, Countess of Prades and an outstanding member of the Catalonian Parliament] will be most honoured to meet General Ritter Petr Kotrimanic at Vienna, where they have been recently summoned by His Imperial & Royal Majesty.

Egad - first error of protocol already! A quick look at your website showed the title Viceroy, I somehow missed the General Deputation and Emperor and King parts...

Vienna isn't far at all from Klow, so you should see Ritter Petr Kotrimanic soon enough. He is one of the junior sons of one of Syldavia's oldest and most prominent noble houses, longtime the Dukes of Zeta. He had a long and respectable military career in the Syldavian army, mostly as in the Horse. He is refined and well-educated gentleman capable of speaking several languages, notably German, Italian and Spanish, and a bit a snob (a habit in his family). As desired by the King, this ambassador is smart, observant, and militarily-minded.

The Erzherzog is pleased that King Stepan is sending an ambassador to represent Syldavia in his court, and eagerly awaits the arrival of Ritter Pompphrish. Quarters are being prepared for him in the Persian wing of the Royal Palace next to the Wholly Roman Empires Diplomatic envoy who should be with us next week. Her Serene Highness the Erzherzogin is most interested in hearing all about Syldavia.
