Gentle patrons of the Merry Rose at Cheapside, let me remind you that we 
are not the Royal Curia of Atlantia, nor even a representative proportion 
of the populace of the Kingdom.  I have brought this issue before you to 
solicite your comments and advice, weight your opinions, deal with such 
problems as you expound, and thereby create a viable proposal for 
creating principalities in Atlantia which will serve the purposes I think 
they should.  Alexii's not wanting a principality is more then 
outweighted by the many people I have spoken to who do wish to create a 
northern principality.  I give his position the merit it deserves, as I 
do Baron Achbar's (it was a private post), Jarl Galmr's, and Gregory of 
Isenfir's.  Still many others, it seems, want to see this discussion 
move forward.

I am not inclined to change the pattern of this discussion (sorry Tadhg 
etal) nor am I ready to conduct a straw polling (one must be ware of the 
strawman people, after all ;-)).

I hope, over this weekend, that individuals from the proposed southern 
and middle principalities will take the time to consider this idea 
particularly, and speak to the suggestion.  Making a positive comment 
will not mean that you are forever forced to be in favor of the 
principality idea.  (making a negative comment doesn't mean you're damned 
to be ever against principalities, either).

Next week, probably Tuesday, I will sum up what I have seen so far, and 
begin the discussion on the need for principalities, as I originally 

In service and begging your patience in this and all things
