|Letter arrives, June 1st, 289|
Dear Lord Justin Terrick,
I hope this shall reach you in time to properly convey my nameday wishes for you, as I have heard that you are reaching your twentieth soon. Know that I do wish I could be there to celebrate such an occasion with you, but time and propriety must keep me away. The Lady Rosanna Groves is hosting a picnic that I shall be invited to, and I must attend as to make a good impression for my family, given the events of the Frey's feast. I am sure you understand that need.
I have, however, received my lord father's permission to visit your Four Eagles Tower afterwards, accompanied with my brother, Lord Rutger Nayland. I think we hope to speak on matters of marriage and alliances, and other things that shall make the Cape stronger for it. I look forward to seeing you, whether that seems too forward or not. I wish to spend more time with you, getting to know each other and strengthening ties between our family.
Enjoy your nameday, my lord, and I hope it brings everything that you could want. I do not have much to offer, but I did include a sketch of a mare that is part sand steed blood that currently resides in our stables. I thought you may appreciate it.
Lady Roslyn Nayland
