We, your tenants, cannot allow this auspicious occasion of your marraige to pass by without expressing in some humble way our feeling of friendship, respect and esteem towards yourself personally.

We feel confident that these happy and pleasant relations so absolutely necessary for the welfare of the country, will continue in the future as they have in the past – Your charitable interest in the sick, poor and needy especially of those in your employment – though performed in the most unselfish and unostentatious manner – has left undying regards in the hearts of grateful recipients – We feel sure that we are only voicing the sentiments and feelings, of the general public, irrespective of party or sect in extending to yourself and Mrs. Lecky, a most cordial greeting and hearty welcome home.
