Today at a special ceremony in the palace, King Leopold IV of Wittenberg conferred the Order of the Golden Quill on Brother James of Wittendorf for his recent publication - Who's Who (Europa Edition).
The King was heard to remark to Brother James ... 'one especially enjoyed reading about those fellows with the strange headgear and those who ate gold herrings - most amusing'
The ceremony was followed by a banquet, at which Brother James had a little bit too much sherry and was heard telling Count Hermann of Munster - 'the hobbles of Wigglestein have pineapples for breakfast - not a lot of people know that ..'
