Should the local Herald recieve a notice of a return? I ask because of the
several Northkeep submissions that were returned but I never heard about it
untill I ran into Magnus at Steppes 12th night and asked him about it. He
then sent me the status of those submissions. When I discussed it with the
submitters at Populace meeting last night none of them had heard anything
