It's clear, with one CD for the so-called "fieldless bribe" (RfS X.4.a.iii),
and one CD for change of tincture of the bear's head (RfS X.4.d).

Depends on how the original letter of permission was worded. For example, in
a blanket letter of permission to conflict, it covers all possible
conflicts, not just a specific one (or two, or whatever).

If memory serves, she used the "standard" letter of permission text, which
indeed only grants permission for one specific blazon to conflict. So yes,
he'll need to get another letter from her.
