    "…knowing him, and something of his deeds, it was impossible not to believe in greatness. In that square figure was housed a spirit of grandeur, and with his massive heroism went gentleness and modesty, even humility. He had no need to proclaim his virtue, for history would be his spokesman."

    Could this be for a Royal Visit? I had a similar one for a Royal Visit to Jersey which was undated - I know that many are now dated for the visit.
