Letters To The Quarter

Besides intriguing offers to help us enlarge our penis, we get all sorts of e-mail letters from readers. Here's a few of them—

Gentle cousin Lady Kathryne I recommend me to you.

OK, I give up. Ever since the first time I read The Quarter's issue # 13 online I have been trying to find the SCA Nudist list, but so far to no avail. I admit I haven't tried very hard, but I have tried. Where did you find it? I'm asking because I would gladly join that list. Provided that it is for people who do both Society for Creative Anachronism (there are many SCAs) and nudism. And if it doesn't exist anymore, I just might start a new one.

La la la!

Johann Magnusson

Dearest Johann,

Perhaps the publicity startled the gentle SCAdian nudists into hiding. I assure you that there was a group at the publication of issue 13. It is an intriguing idea; after all, think of the money you'd save not making garb! (On the other hand, thinking of seeing some of the folks I've encountered at SCA events naked is enough to send ME screaming toward the nearest emergency eye wash!) —Kathryne

Indecent Proposal

Why oh why can't An Tir have a publication as fun as The Quarter?

Keep up the fun, please!

The Guy In Charge of The Love Which Dare
Not Speaketh Its Name, Ærik The Penalt

Dear Æric,

Thanks for the compliments. And don't worry, we won't pass any judgements about the love thing. Just take the usual precautions. —Kathryne

What the hell is a HERALD?

Is that a mandolin you're playing with, or are you just happy to see me?

Gerald Johnson

Dear Gerald,

Heralds are many things to many people. They are criers of camps, manglers of names, people who reject your name and device only to let someone else pass the same name and device years later...they're all that and more, though they're not quite as bad as we make them out to be. Without them, The Quarter would have fewer jokes, that's for sure! —Kathryne

Now the world don't move to the beat of just one drum... Oh, wait, maybe it does.


We are looking for a group around the Souther Mississippi area who might be interested in coming to help us put on renaissance festival for girls in October 2002.

I don't know if you are the one I would contact, if not, could you help us contact the right person.

Dear Good Gentle,

We are in the Southern Wastes, that is, Antarctica, so arriving at your event in Mississippi may pose a bit of a problem. In any case, members of The Quarter Staff are, as everyone knows, not the right people. Especially when it comes to providing activities for Girl Scouts. —Kathryne

The Quarter - Now with fewer txypographical errrors!
