not_a_clotpole: (Writing is Hard...)
Cenred continues to make life difficult...today for example yet another letter arrived from Mercia wanting to know exactly how we would deal with the situation. Apparently King Bayard is of the opinion that because Cenred invaded Camelot we're entirely responsible for cleaning up the mess. They've got patrols on their borders of course, but they're not going any further than that, at least not at present, and the letter warned that if measures needed to be taken Bayard would hold Camelot personally responsible and demand payment from us! That's the last thing we need, not that the kingdom is running particularly low on money, it's the principle of the thing, the people certainly won't want to foot the bill for too much.

And Bayard's only the tip of the iceberg! I'm surrounded by correspondence and I was only away for a night! Week long hunting trips are definitely not in my future.

Ugh! I've had enough writing. Early morning training tomorrow is at the very least, something to look forward to. Thank God for the knights.
