'Which is right?

"Your Grace," said the High Lord Arms Master, "may I say to Sword Nanny..."

 

 Or

 

"Your Grace," said the High Lord Arms Master. "May I say to Sword Nanny..."

 

I'm pretty sure it's the second one, but I'd like a second opinion.

No, the first is correct.  Take out the middle section and you have "Your Grace, may I say......" which is fine.
