While Edward Suffolk was sitting at the dinner table with his family, a servant would bring the sealed letter. He would break the bear seal thinking of the prefect Javier and begin reading. After reading he would face his family and before passing the letter to them he would humbly say; “While one does not seek titles or honours, one has pledged oneself to the service of one's nation. And if one's peers and lords have resolved that, that was the best way one could serve, one shall reluctantly have to accept the responsibility, whatever one's own private wishes might be.” Edward Suffolk would then execute the letter, press his seal on red wax and scribe the following before before delivering it back to the crown, Witness whereof I set my hand andaffix the seal of Suffolk" Lord Edward Suffolk, Duke of Warwick”.
