Not illustrated. 1751 edition. Excerpt: ...The testimony of heav'n to thee, my son, Thus gloriously accorded, renders vain All farther trial. To my people's voice, By this their tutelary pow'r declar'd, With pleasure I consent, directing still By theirs my choice, my judgment, my desires.; Approach then, my belov'd, my noble son, Strength of my crown, and honour of my realm; In whom my heart more joys, and glories more, That in the highest pride of sovereign pow'r. Thus I admit thee, Edward prince of Wales, First founder of the Order of St. George; In evidence whereof, about thy knee I bind this mystick Garter; to denote The bond of honour, that together ties ', " the The prince of Wales advances to his father, and kneels; while the king, taking the Garter from the herald, buckles it round his left leg. The brethren of St. George in friendly league, United to maintain the cause of truth And justice only f " May propitious heav'n " Grant thou may henceforth wear it to his praise, " The exaltation of this noble Order, " And thy own glory."
