It depends on where you are. I'm proceeding on the assumption that Sir  
Gunthar has already been through a vigil under whatever conditions are  
considered appropriate for the kingdom in which it was held. Some  
kingdoms either don't hold vigils for non-chivalry peerages, and most,  
I believe, don't expect peers to sit multiple vigils. Presumably the  
Spirit of The Peerage descends on the candidate in the form of a dove  
or some such, and any further attempts to invite it are considered by  
many to be extraneous.

On the other hand, I'm sure Gunthar would welcome Laurel-specific  
advice in addition to any general good wishes anyone would care to  
send his way.
