Laurel LoPaD dated 2017-07-19
To all the College of Arms and all others who may read this missive, from Emma Laurel, Alys Pelican, Bruni outgoing-Wreath, and Cormac incoming-Wreath, greetings.
This letter contains the issues raised in the May 2017 LoAR for CoA discussion. The text in this letter is copied verbatim from that LoAR; it is provided here for convenience. As with a July LoI, these matters are currently scheduled for the Pelican and Wreath meetings in October 2017. Original commentary, responses, and rebuttals to commentary must be entered into OSCAR no later than Saturday, September 30, 2017.
1: Mi'namoto Natsume - New Device
OSCAR is unable to find the name, either registered or submitted.
Sable, a cinquefoil bush and a bordure argent
This device is pended for discussion on what difference, if any, to grant between a tree and a bush, as well as what defining traits should be present for the charge to be recognizable a bush. If there is no difference between a tree and a bush, there are several conflicts.
This was item 6 on the Ealdormere letter of February 25, 2017. (http://oscar.sca.org/index.php?action=145&id=72934)
Pray know that I remain,
Emma de Fetherstan
Laurel Queen of Arms
