Most Wise Boudicca of Bonisagus,
I would be honored to join your covenant. With two fellow members of my house at my current covenant, both steeped in the Inner Mysteries of Jerkishness, and a short flight from my Mother my current situation is becoming increasingly annoying to deal with. I can assure you both myself and the Drake Tia, my familiar would make excellent additions to a covenant. I will be happy to spend a reasonable amount of time providing the benefits of my House's Outer Mystery to the covenant free of charge, assuming such items are not made for sale. I know that seems weird, but its a House Mystery thing. Selling stuff can turn us into massive jerks.
Can I assume the basic components for laboratory research will be provided? Also can I assume the materials and space needed will be provided to set up a lab, or access to an existing lab will be provided? Furthermore, would it be possible to have a sanctum with a room for servants, a basic kitchen, a lab and a personal bedroom? At a minimum I will need room and board for myself, Tia who is particularly voracious, basic cooking tools, and an elementary lab, with a supply of reagents, or the space and equipment to set up my own.
Tia says I'm not asking for nearly enough. She also demands sweets, but you can ignore that if you want.
Hope of Verditius
P.S. Burn this letter. My House gets cranky when details of their Mysteries get revealed, even when its minor unimportant details. Best not to leave this lying around.
