This is the address as written on the parchment strip used to wrap up the letter. I like the mixture of chummy camaraderie and implied threat as he reminds his treasurers of their position. I am not sure whether the word feauls just means "those who are faithful" in a general and polite sense of the word, or whether it strictly implies those who have taken an oath of fealty, but either way it seems to be a reminder of who is the boss.
