Maunche for Dosalena Sofia della Mirandola
To Our most excellent lady Dosalena Sofia della Mirandola, Edward, illustrious King of the East, and Thyra, the Queen, send greetings to our most devoted servant.
It is written in the book of Wisdom: "As the sun rising in the heights of the world, so the beauty of a good art from a noble woman is a great ornament in the house of the East." But the sun rising dispels the horror of darkness from the world, brings in the happy softness of light, drives away nocturnal fears and turbulence, bestows security and tranquility, and to encompass many things in a brief word, a touch of the pen, the warmth of the paint upon parchment, whatever grows naturally in this visible world, thrives and flourishes, naturally, from the vital warming of the rays of the rising sun in the world.
It is fitting, therefore that the beauty and elegance of your works given most freely, with kindness, goodness, and virtue in the adornment of our Kingdom, should have similar effects to the rising sun. By opposing the horror of errors and supplying truth with your quill, brush and paint, so the kingdom may enjoy the desired tranquility of peace for all the living, providing most prudently for them to grow and thrive and flourish to completion.
Our beloved clerk, the bearer of the presents, could better reveal to you, if it please you, orally of our true love and admiration. Now is the place and time for your beautiful works, the quality of your teaching and your commitment to great art, and thus to disclose its brilliance to all and sundry.
Therefore, we shall and do by these present letters decree, enact and ordain that you be and hereby are inducted and accepted into the Order of the Maunche on this seventeenth day of January, anno societatus forty-nine, at our Twelfth Night in Our Barony of Carillion. Done this day with our hand and seal.
