Re: Peers, Made or Recognized
Luther asks of us:
>If the above gentleman did me a great kindness who should I tell? Write to
>the King? Baron? Seneschal? Marshal? Influential Dukes? The Acorn? All?
>Realistically, what can *we* do?
You're headed down the right track--WRITE. Pause for a moment and consider
what honor you believe should be bestowed...is it for fighting, artistic
skill, managerial prowess, or extraordinary courtesy? Or anything else?
Think about what they have done to gain your praise...and suggest them to the
appropriate order. Write to their Baron or Baroness if they live in a barony
and can be recognized there. Write to the Crowns and the Principal of the
appropriate group (Sea Stag for fighting, Pearl for A&S, Golden Dolphin for
Service.) Write to the Queen if their courtesy seems remarkable. If what they
have done is greater still, write to the Crowns and the Principal of the
Order (Laurel, Knight, or Pelican.)
You have just as much right to recommend someone for Laurel as Duchess
Melisande. While her opinion may carry greater influence (she gets to answer
the pollings, after all), your opinion will not go unnoticed.
The main thing is making your opinion known to folks who directly participate
in the decision--the Crowns and the Order members. Writing is one of the
tools YOU have to influence the process.
