My Lord,
I can only hope that in this society of chilvary and
courtousy, that the above last few lines, were a hastly written
mistake, and not the mean-spirted bad humor they now appear to
be.As a friend of Myles and Owain, I am shocked. As a member of
our Kingdom, I am ashamed. I can only hope that you can explain
this to this List, your Knight, your King to whom your fealty
runs, the Barony of Marinus, and most importantly Baroness
Owain.( Or is she like Duke Micheal, fair game to your attacks,
since she is not subscribing to this list.)

Awaiting your reply,

Bryce de Byram

If I may hazard a guess....

	When investigating whether or not a group could give monetary
	offers of support to an individual, we found it was not possible
	for a non-profit organization to do this.  *However*, from one
	organization to another, this was ok.  So I think he was suggesting
	that we create an "organization" that is "Tragically Widowed.."
	so that she could receive official Kingdom support (from poetry
	publishing proceeds) without any legal issues.

	I'd guess the sarcastic undertones were due to an annoyance with the
	law, not with the situation.  (Though the wording could have been
	a little clearer, Leifr... ;-)

	[But, I'm just coming up with the best possible answer. =) ]
