Alliance Assurance Company
Edinburgh, 22nd October 1884.
Sir Moses Montefiore, Bart., F.R.S.
We, the members of the Edinburgh Board of
the Alliance Assurance Company, beg to offer you our hearty congratulations
on the completion of your hundredth year.
Although he have the privilege more particularly of addressing you in
consequence of our connection with the â€śAllianceâ€ť Office â€“ an Institution to which
you have rendered most important services since its formation sixty years ago â€“
we cannot forget that your name is even more widely known and held in honour
in connection with deeds of philanthropy and beneficence.
Notwithstanding that you have already reached an age which is rarely
attained we trust that you may yet be spared for some time, in the enjoyment
of good health, and that the closing period of your life may be rendered happy
by the knowledge that your prolonged exertions in the cause of humanity
have not been in vain.
Signed on behalf of the Board
John Boyd Chairman
