Laurel LoPaD dated 2023-09-17

To all the College of Arms and all others who may read this missive, from Emma Laurel, Elisabetta Pelican, and Iago Wreath, greetings.

This letter contains the issues raised in the July 2023 LoAR for CoA discussion. The text in this letter is copied verbatim from that LoAR; it is provided here for convenience. As with an August 2023 LoI, these matters are currently scheduled for the Pelican and Wreath meetings in November 2023. Original commentary, responses, and rebuttals to commentary must be entered into OSCAR no later than Tuesday, October 31, 2023.

Argent, in fess a ram's head cabossed and a wolf's head cabossed sable and issuant from base a mountain of three peaks gules

3: Fortuné Stykewynd - New Device Change

OSCAR finds the name registered exactly as it appears in March of 2014, via Ansteorra.

Sable, a lotus flower in profile Or, and on a ford proper an increscent Or

Old Item: Sable, a lotus flower in profile argent and on a ford proper an increscent Or, to be released.

This device is pended for redraw to draw the ford with the top trait argent so it has sufficient contrast with the field.

If the redrawn device is accepted the submitter's previous device, Sable, a lotus flower in profile argent and on a ford proper an increscent Or, is to be released.

This was item 5 on the Ansteorra letter of April 4, 2023.
