The great poet Samuel ha-Nagrid has written,
“Man’s wisdom is at the tip of his pen,
His intelligence is in his writing.
A pen can raise a man to the height
Of the scepter in the hand of his king.” *
We, King Kenric ap Essex and Queen Avelina Keyes, attest to the truth of this.
It is with a pen that Lord Gideon ha-Khaza has shared his knowledge of fighting laws and histories of the Jewish people with the Knowne World. We bid him approach the Eastern scepter to be named a Companion of the Order of the Maunche, so recognized at the Coronation of Their Majesties Kenric and Avelina in the Shire of Quintavia on the ninth of April, A.S. L.
