Lady Deoca of Elvegast reports on the University, and singles out
Henry for high praise:
...I did get to
witness most of Lord Henry's convocation, which was most entertaining.
I also had the joy of witnessing Lord Henry's ankles and I must say
that Countess Ianthe's assessment was most apt. Henry, you have
remarkable ankles. I highly recommend them for viewing to all ladies
of the realm.
While I am pleased to hear that Chancellor Henry's ankles have not
suffered diminishment in appeal over the four months since I saw
them, I am a bit dismayed to know that they have become a major
distraction at University.
It's difficult enough for students to learn, what with the high
cost of lodging, the dearness of books, parchement and ink, and
the lure of gambling and friendly taverns - not the least of
which is the 'Rose. Now I find that an idle comment has turned a
venerated scholar into a instrument that quickens the pulse of
half the population.
Sadly, I have only myself to blame. I offer my deepest apologies
to Henry, and beg all ladies in his presence NOT to look at his
ankles. Stare fixedly into his eyes, follow his
fingertips as they wave in the air when he speaks; watch
his hat, contemplate his medallions of office, but avoid looking
everything from the point of his shoes to his gartered knees.
Especially his ankles.
