An excelent point Your Most Excelent Excellency. While I was not one
of those who made the request, I was in complete agreement with them
and happy to have the text. So...

Lady Alianora,

   Thank you so much for taking the time to transcribe the
aforementioned text, especially considering your busy student
schedule. I particularly appreciate your efforts in representing those
pesky characters that are not present in ASCII (and explaining how you
had managed to represent them. I now have a copy of a most interesting
text that wouldnot otherwise be available in my permanent files.
