Good greeting to you, my lady Abbess!

Pray sit you down here, near the fire, and compose yourself.  We are all 
friends here--no one will in any wise cast you out for your habit and person!  
We sit here and discuss all sorts of amazing things, with all sorts of amazing 
gentles of the Known World--do you but join us, our number will be made the 
more pleasant for your presence, though we cannot always guarantee we'll 
refrain from the occasional <blush> bawdy song or tale ....

Wilst have some Stew (tm) with your brew?

Welcome to you,
