Lithographic reproduction, in Edouard Pingret, "Voyage de S. M. Louis-Philippe Ier roi des Français au château de Windsor dédié à S. M. Victoria reine d’Angleterre", Paris, 1846.
The text of this congratulatory address by the Joint Council of the City of London to Louis-Philippe was read out to the king in October 1844 in Windsor by the City archivist, Henry Alworth Merewether, who also signed this address, copied onto vellum and decorated by several artists and presented to the king in July 1845. It is a powerful symbol of the first Entente cordiale.
