They desire that Lady Emily’s children, who have accompanied her, may “always consider this their home… [and] continue to reside among their own people and with [ Lady Emily’s ] example adhere to the noble traditions of their family”. The subscribers beg her acceptance of the accompanying presentation “as a lasting memorial of the friendly feelings they entertain “towards her.
Includes Lady Emily’s reply of thanks for the diamond stais which she will “value…all [her] life” as a reminder of the “friendship and affection of all who have known [her] since childhood, and of their love and esteem for [her] family”. She also desires that her children, after an absence of three years in Charleville, will grow up amongst the tenants and “by & bye prove themselves worthy of your love and respect”. Lady Emily concludes with the wish that the “happy relations” so long existing between her family and the tenants may continue “ for many generations”
