[i]Proctor scholae Guernici, salve.
I have convinced the magi of Mons Electi to claim their sources as seisin; I have completed all the necessary paperwork and will file it once validated. They have assumed that they will be fined for plundering, and I have not dissuaded them from this assumption. Do you wish to initiate charges?
As the weather is too cold for a fair validation (how do mundanes travel over snow, anyway?), Mons Electi has given me guest status. I think I might spend some time reading Velarian's magnum opus, until the snows clear and their cursor is ready.
I have been here a week, and A has not yet seen fit to leave his laboratory to greet his guests. It seems that only those who have signed his charter ever see him in person. I will gather what information I can, but it would be easier to separate truth from idle gossip if I knew what your suspicions were. I have overheard that A will be paying a visit to Atsingani which will keep him away from home for some time, so I have taken it upon myself to register their vis claims as well. Naturally I will time the visit so that our stays there overlap, but not by so much as to arouse suspicion.
You are likely aware that I have been initiated in Fenicil's rituals, in case you wish to invest any vis into your interest here. I can possibly cast Wisdom of Athena by myself, but it would be less risk of needlessly wasting vis if one other can assist me in its casting. You will understand my refusal to commune with my father. Would Aristarchus be able to? I should appreciate more opportunities to better acquaint myself with your filius, and would be grateful for your blessing on that front.
I resent being used as a catspaw, and hope that you recall how patient I have been on your repeated affronts to my pride when next you observe Cavillor blundering gormlessly through advocation.
