This year, the good Don Lyev has given me to the enjoyable task of coordination for the Grand Ball that will take place in the fair city of Pennsic this summer. Herewith I am providing a tentative list of dances for the ball. As I ardently desire that the festivities find favour with all particpants, I invite all potential participants to make suggestions for the Ball's Play List. As time will be somewhat limited, I will be unable to honour all requests, but I will endeavor to arrange an evening enjoyable to all.
For our dancing pleasure, the most noble Meastro Octavio de Flores will be leading the best musicians in the eighteen kingdoms, that our step may never lose its rhythm; the muses of dance and music are, after all, the closest of sisters.

I remain your loyal servant,
