The Nineteenth Year

The Queen's Ascension Day Tea -- Eskalya
November 17, 1984 (AS XIX)

From The Page (November, 1984):

Hear ye, Hear ye. All devotees of the best queen England ever knew are invited to attend

THE QUEEN'S ASCENSION DAY TEA

to begin upon the noon hour, Saturday, November 17, which is the anniversary of the day our beloved Eliza became Queen of England by the grace of God and the blessed death of her sister Mary.

We shall hold revel this day in the fashion of old; vis., burnt wine and spice cakes for all, a little gunpowder, toasts and good cheer from the gently born gathered together in her name, and for charity and that the Queen may reign forever, Decrepit Old Sots may appeal for a cup of wine, a cake, and a penny to be granted as a Blessing for Bess.

Especial invitation is issued to all lords and ladies who love the Tudor era, and wish to pleasure themselves with Tudor dress and cakes, and with rhyme and rhetorik in memory of the good queen.

Another especial invitation is issued to all those who wish to attend, but don't wish to embrace Tudor stays: call ye to Marya, who will be in attendance as a Decrepit Old Sot and would love an assembly of lowly fellows.

This Tea is a good work of the Society of Friends of St. Clare of Assisi, who do more for tea than China ever did.

For futher details, call Annora of Shadowood (contact info omitted).


Description of this event (if any), taken from The Page, or from memory of at least one person who attended the event.
