    Client will *not* accept changes. Again, this is another submission where people don't read the form and adds a side note: "They would prefer it as one word ( I assume Wicferth), but if necessary, they'll accept it as two. They'll accept changing the second element's spelling to <ferthe> or <firth> if necessary, but much prefer it." This is a Pennsic Submission, what you see in the summary is what was on the worksheet.
