Welcome to Medieval Monday and the month of February!
The medieval word for this month is: Boist. You will not find this in an ordinary dictionary. The definition below is from a Dictionary of Medieval Terms and Phrases.
Boist (boiste): The bag used by kings and other messengers to carry the post entrusted to them.
The king had a body of messengers whose task was to carry writs, letters and any kind of document throughout the kingdom. (On one occasion a messenger was sent to deliver part of the quartered body of a man executed for treason.) They always traveled on horse. An attack on a messenger was deemed an attack on the king, which may have kept them safe to some extent.
