AoA for Myfanwy Bullen




The exemplar is HMML Cod. S 1399, f.110r. The text reads:

To Myfanwy Bullen, right worthy and well-beloved, from Iannick and Alana, greetings. Know that many are the reports we have received of your gentility, your diligence in the arts, your skills with a bow, and your service to our subjects, our shires, and hence to ourselves your rightful princes: We in return reward you creating you a lady of our court: Datum i juli lij.

I again marked my progress in half hour increments on twitter:

I then completely forgot to time how long the calligraphy took, but it was probably ~45 min.
