development, which, at every stage of our national progress, has been fruitful in salutary improvement.
Humbly acknowledging the bounty of that Providence which has conducted this nation to a period of unexampled repose, apparent safety, and manifest prosperity, I echo the universal feeling in expressing my conviction that to the constitutional principles and public virtues of the Queen, and to the great example of private excellence exhibited by Her Majesty and the deeply-lamented Prince Consort, we owe very much of the good we now enjoy. Those social ameliorations which have been the happiest characteristics of the Queen's beneficent reign, and which it was the unwearied endeavour of your Royal Highness's illustrious Father to promote, will, I have the assured belief, receive a new impulse from your Royal Highness's fostering care.
With the earnest prayer that by the Divine Blessing your Royal Highness may be strengthened in every patriotic work, and may live long in the enjoyment of all domestic happiness, surrounded by the affections of the People,
I have the honour to subscribe myself,
