Henry Grey Posted December 15, 2022 Share Posted December 15, 2022 (edited) Quote STEWARD OF THE ROOMS A small room for Lord Beverley, Steward of the Rooms, in which he kept stacks and stacks of papers, keeping careful logs of who came and parted, what rooms required cleaning, how much damage was done and thus repairs that needed to be made. After having a light lunch while he worked on his correspondence, Henry returned to the Castle, this time by carriage. There was one person he needed to speak to, a Lord Beverley still unknown to him, the man who either could grant him permission to use the roof of the towers to setup his telescopes or, if he could not grant him the boon, definitely knew who could. Lord Athenry had offered an introduction, but if it took too long, the moon would start to fill the night skies with light, and it would be more difficult to see the stars. So, hoping that the Welsh Lord would not take exception to Lord Grey using his name, he decided to expedite matters by introducing himself. On an unrelated matter, Lord Grey had originally thought about sending Prince Ruppert a letter requesting a meeting to ask for use of the furnace, but since Baron Dundarg had said that it would go through Lord Beverley anyway, he decided to deliver it himself, along two bottles of Henry’s favourite apple brandy from Normandy, one for the German Prince, and one for Lord Beverley. Hopefully that would show proper respect to both, and they would agree to his requests. So it was that Lord Grey found himself knocking at the door of the office of the Steward of Rooms. Knock. Knock-knock! Edited December 15, 2022 by Henry Grey Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
