On the attempt on the life of the Queen at Windsor on Thursday, March the 2nd, the following address was forwarded to Her Majesty on the part" of the Anglo-Jewish Association:—
May it Please Your Majesty,
8th March, 1882.
It is with gratitude to a benignant Providence which has averted from your gracious Majesty the peril of death, and from our beloved country the profoundest of sorrows, that I humbly approach your Majesty with expressions of deep-felt congratulations on behalf of the members of the Anglo-Jewish Association.
The danger, to which the precious life of your Majesty has been exposed, has called forth in the breasts of your Jewish subjects, as among all the other loyal subjects of your Majesty's vast dominions, an outburst of unanimous sympathy, and has impressed all with the conviction that England's greatest power is to be found in that tie of affectionate devotion by which all classes of Society are loyally and truly attached to your gracious Majesty, whose exemplary virtues have placed your Majesty in the highest rank of rulers, and are the foundation of the happiness of England's citizens, no less than the pride of England's sons and daughters.
We all fervently pray that your Majesty during a long and prosperous reign may find compensation for past trials in the unswerving loyalty and devotion of your Majesty's subjects.
I am,
Your Majesty's most dutiful and most loyal subject,
(Signed) Henry de "Worms,
This Address was duly acknowledged by the Secretary of State for the Home Department.
