Congratulations! I know how hard it is to start up this service - I
have been doing it (mostly by myself, some help from locals) for the
last year and some.

Just a question - what do you mean by 'full-service'?

Yep - lay out the books and they will come! :-)

As I knew Sir Galen when he was Viscount Galen (no Sir), could you
tell me what the form was he chose and what it was granted for?

'Runaway train feel'! I like that - sounds like the third day of
last year, with six SENIOR heralds behind the table and about thirty 
clients in front of us - we were backed into a corner of a large tent
so didn't feel *trapped* exactly, but it was intimidating.
