I think people would love a gift you made, whether you're king or not, Papa. 
That you're king would just make it extra-cool!
--Maire, who'd make it for you, to relieve your lady's stress, if we could 
figure out a way to ship it....

That's a cool idea. I'd love to hand out batches of
canned food or jellies as largesse. I'd personally
like to make a huge batch of spiced mustard
to hand out as gifts. I've been told that people have
gotten addicted to my mustards.

Also, wine jellies are very easy to do. Unfortunately, our
free weekends are beginning to become rather scarce.
I might still be able to manage a day of mustard or
jelly making.

You think people would like a gift of food made by the King?


(And Elizabeth is now shuddering at the mention of me
making another huge batch of mustard.)
