The Sixth Year

(No event title) -- Province of Southern Shores
April, 1972

Suzanne of Woodwose Hall Hall became Provincial Mistress of Arts.

“Apropos of not very much -- somewhere along in here we should be encountering one of my all-time-favorite second-hand tales.... Somewhere along in here, didn't TRM Paul and Carol attend a feast in An Tir where the menu -- featuring roast suckling pig -- had been calligraphed by someone with a great deal of enthusiasm and little knowledge of letter-form usage?” – Hilary of Serendip

“The feast was in Lions Gate, the scribe was Nikolai Andreiov. We still have a copy of the infamous menu. Master Nikolai is now a Master of the Laurel. He mistakenly used the long "S" at the beginning of a word, when he should have used the short "S".” – Amanda Kendal of Westmoreland

This is from The History of the West Kingdom, Volume 1 (the only volume produced). When reading this text, please keep in mind the following disclaimer:

Disclaimer: This history may have errors in it, as much of the detail is “remembered” history, or as one of the cover pages of the original type-written manuscript states “The material within is derived from the information printed in The Crown Prints and in The Page, and from the memories of the participants.” The original document was typed on onion-skin paper, with hand-written notes (often in the margins). All attempts have been made to reconcile the notes with the original document.

Annotations, when they are added, are from The Annotated History of the West, Volume 1, which is the same text as Master Wilhelm's mentioned above, with commentary from members of the SCA who were active at the time of the event, and are added to help clarify questions and expand on what happened and why.
