Okay, folks. One of my major projects so far has been to build a Bordure
library of LoIs of all the kingdoms. The reason I wanted to do this is so
that I can answer questions for people that could not be answered for me a
short while ago. Those questions go like this: "I know <SomeName> was
registed in '88 by Atenvelt. The online O&A says so. What documentation
did they use to get it through and is that documentation still useable?"
If you send me the citation from the online O&A, I can now look up what was
said on the LoI for most kingdoms from 1981-1991. (Many thanks to Arval
Benicouer for being willing to send me his recycle pile when he cleaned out.)
I'll go home and make a list of what Ansteorran LoIs I have. Then I'll
post it here. If any of you can fill in the holes, I would be really
grateful. At the very least, we should have a full set of Gazettes & LoIs
somewhere in the kingdom offices. I think most of the Gazettes have gone
Asterisk's way. The LoIs should logically be with Bordure.

Yeah. After I had carefully sorted incoming stuff into 3 separate files
(one to file, one to answer, and one to read), my cat Fionn (a green-eyed
red tabby) ever so helpfully shuffled them as he went chasing after a
non-existant bit of air.
