With many Crowns deciding to give out scrolls rather than tokens as their Cyphers, I've been asked several times how such scrolls should be worded. Obviously, a personalized text is ideal, but since Cyphers are often done on very very short notice, here is an example that can be personalized if there is time:
[King's first name/Queen's first name], to all those whom these present letters shall see or shall hear, greetings. Considering the manifold labors and travails that we have charged our servant [recipient] to undertake in our name and for the greater glory of our person; and the said [recipient's first name] having borne such burdens with constancy, faith, honor, fortitude and forbearance; We are therefore moved to bestow upon the said [recipient's firest name] our Cypher. Done upon this [date], in the [number] year of the Society, at [place].
