Simple Text for a Burdened Tyger

I admit that I kind of hate the "suggested" wording for Order of the Burdened Tyger scrolls found in the old Scribes' Handbook.   Here is my suggestion for more period wording:

Whereas liberality and hospitality are among the first virtues, essential to the good of Our Realm and Our people; and whereas [recipient] demonstrated and conveyed such excellent liberality and hospitality as [steward/cook/function] of [event name]; and whereas We are moved to reward the said [recipient's first name] for his/her labors; Therefore, We, [king’s first name] and [queen’s first name], King and Queen of the East, do by these present letters induct the said [recipient’s first name] into the Order of the Burdened Tyger, with all rights, privileges and duties appertaining thereto.  Done on [date] at [place].
