Sir Robert Vaughan of Garthmaelan – Llanfachreth Address and Presentation 1887 (Translation).
We the inhabitants of Llanfachreth Parish and the tenants of the Nannau Estate desire to offer you warmest congratulations, on the attainment of your majority, and to express our sincere hope that you will be blessed with a long life, of health happiness and prosperity, and marked by its generosity and usefulness.
Your family for centuries, as landowners have been closely connected to this parish and our forefathers, and have proved themselves to this day, foster-fathers and foster-mothers to the sons of need and toil. Your father and mother by their active sympathy and care for the aged, weak and sickly, as well as for the young, and by that encouragement and support of every movement tending to promote the welfare of society, have one for themselves a good name and in regard of all classes of the community.
May heaven long spare them to you to us. We avail ourselves of the present occasion joy and mutual goodwill, to ask you to accept at own hands this silver jug purchased with a proportion of the hearty contributions of all neighbours, as a small token of the kindliest feelings and best wishes towards you, and also of our high opinion the respective family of Nannau.
