United under the Phoenix, We, <Current Baron>, Baron of the Sacred Stone, and <Current Baroness>, Our Baroness send greetings.
Finding Ourselves in receipt of many good reports of <recipient>, who has distinguished [himself/herself] through skill with the bow, and informed that <recipient> has long pursued feats of archery and deeds of virtue>, We find [he/she] is worthy to be renowned and received into the number and company of gentles.
We do publicly commend [him/her] and do hereby prefer and create [him/her] as a Companion of the Order of the Yeoman of the Sacred Stone. Our Companion has the right to bear the badge of this Order: Argent, a fist maintaining an arrow vert with the tip engulfed proper issuant from flames proper.
Done by Our Hands this <day of the month> day of <month>, [A.S./Anno Societatis] <year in Roman numerals>, at <event>.
We, <Current Baron> and <Current Baroness>, Baron and Baroness of the Sacred Stone, are led to address this missive to you, <recipient>, by the high repute which attaches to your name in the field of archery. The valiant and noble spirit that aspires to be the best at the bow must aim not at the goal of attaining honors but at breadth of learning, dedication to practice, courtesy on and off the field and honor in every endeavor.
A most illustrious gentle, you have demonstrated all of these attributes and more. You will find no finer example of prowess, constancy and devotion.
Thus We are moved to recognize you as a Companion of the Order of the Yeoman of the Sacred Stone and allow unto you the badge of the Order: Argent, a fist maintaining an arrow vert with the tip engulfed proper issuant from flames proper.
The importance of this last is hardly to be disregarded for it is among the highest marks of distinction allowed.
To this We set Our Hand this <day of the month> day of <month>, [A.S./Anno Societatis] <year in Roman numerals>, at <event>.
