Re: [Northshield]: Jafar's Dukedom

Poster: GUNDSPHOTO@aol.com

 In case anyone is interested......this was posted to Northshield

Baron Fernando of Three Rivers, a member of the BoD, sent this to the
Calontir list.  I know the original letter gave a snail mail address for
comment, but there are email options as well.  I've also included a second
message from Fernando that addresses the issue of choosing a title for Jafar
and using it, despite what it says in curia.  I think he stated the
pertinent issues better than I could myself.
