A back-log Lindquistringes, based on British Library MS Arundel 134 f. 2, France, 2nd half of the 13th C. The hand is a (very sorry) attempt at Gothic. The filler in this initial makes me much happier than my previous attempt, though I still feel like I don't know how to finish off the ends -- my flourishes at the end of the vertical block aren't right.
The text reads:
Greetings from Gerhardt and Judith, king and queen of Drachenwald, to all who read these present letters. Much good have we seen and heard of the deeds and works of Katherine Percival. In recognition of all that she has rendered to us and ours we are minded to make her a companion of our Orden des Lindquistringes with all the rights and responsibilities appertaining thereto. This we do on the viith day of November, in the year of the society xliv, in our Shire of Adamestor, and in witness whereof we have signed our names below.
