<blockquote><p align="justify">As I request very little from you as far as personal favors go, I assure letters of this type shall be exceedingly rare. In fact the inquiry I am about to make is not for myself but for a dear friend. Duke Blackbourne has become one of my closest advisers since taking up the governorship here in Bahar. He has recently informed me of a request from his only daughter. She wishes to come to court.
Katherine is a charming girl and very beautiful as well. She in my opinion would be a lovely jewel to add to the court. Her father and I are in agreement that there is simply not enough to do in Bahar for a young woman her age. When I come for the engagement feast I would like to bring her and introduce her to the court and then perhaps find a place for her within our sisters ladies.<BR><BR>
Of course all at your will. </blockquote>[/dohtml]
