Thank you for the information on the 'jarls' of Orkney. This
is similar to the information which I had included in
the genealogy of Prince Henry Sinclair and it would be
appropriate (I think) to present our Norwegian friends
with a framed copy of this genealogy when we visit them in
August. By copy of this e-mail I am asking that man
of parts, Ian Sinclair, to persuade his friend to frame one of the
scrolls so we will have something to give to the
Norwegians when we visit them. As you know, they inundated us
with presents and we will look singularly 'cheap'
if we do not try to respond in like manner. The Caithness Glass
paper weights have already been ordered with a
request that they are ready in time for the Halkirk Games and for our
visit to Norway.
I have also ordered the Millennium Sword but it will be
different because it will have the engrailed cross
of the Sinclairs inscribed on its blade in addition to all the other
markings which you saw on the illustration.
This, as I have already explained in my letter to the Highland Council,
will be presented to the person who
has contributed most to Caithness life during the preceding year.
I have visited the Wilkinson factory and impressed upon them the need to
have the sword ready in time for the Halkirk
Games. I have asked them to give the number 1398 to the
sword which will be a reminder of the date Prince Henry
Sinclair sailed for the New World.
