By the Barony of Cynnabar on 2015-08-05
The office of this Our architect of information, or his care and business, could hardly be expressed in words, even though Ours were the pen of a ready writer. For in all things, and concerning all things which are carried on throughout Our lands, his careful diligence is necessary: namely, in receiving the accounts from all the populace, and in the preservation of this knowledge. For he furnishes the tools, according to the nature of the matters, for the sustentation and publication of this record; and he must take care that there be no mistake either in the number or the letter. For so great is the authority of his record that it is understood as truth by all. Likewise it is this Minister's duty to be associated in all great matters with the other officers, and to work with them in friendship.
With this in mind, and also percipient of the length of time he has willingly served in this office, We, Ermenrich and Kasha, Baron and Baroness of Cynnabar, herewith confer upon Aaron Drummond Our Award of the Tower's Foundation.
Let none countermand Our words.
