Ya'll thought I had forgotten (grin).  I had a newsletter to get out so I'm 
sorry I'm late.

Here is the wording of letters of marque (or mark) I used when the 
prototype of the Star Signet office. My mistake in that we called them 
letters of credence:  These were written and given out as letters (no 
illumination per se) sometime in 1984 (AS XV-XVI)

In as much as it is the right of the Crown of Ansteorra to appoint such 
Ambassadors as is pleasing and necessary, and in as much as Our 
subject____________, is able to reside in the Kingdom of _______________, 
it is Our pleasure to appoint her/him as Our Ambassador to _______________.
	We do charge _______________ to spread the Good WIll of the Crown of 
Ansteorra unto the citizens and the Crown of ____________, and to all 
foreign lands through which s/he may travel, and that these Letters shall 
stand as Our mark of Credence.
	We do further charge that s/he must act in all ways worthy of this title, 
and shall present her/himself unto the Crown of _____________ as Our 

(Optional Embassy clause)
	With this, We do also grant her/him the right to establish Embassy in 
________, should the Crown of ____________ approve.
