To Her Most Excellent Majesty…

An introduction to the Privy Purse 1 (PP1) series of records.

The beautiful, rarely-seen congratulatory addresses in the Privy Purse series were presented to Queen Victoria to celebrate her Golden Jubilee in 1887 and Diamond Jubilee in 1897.

The senders are many and varied, but comprise principally institutions of local government; schools and colleges; social, cultural, educational and religious societies; military and medical establishments; and those of trades associations and manufacturing companies.
