Letter from the Queen

My significant cultural object is a letter that appointed my great grandpa, Sir Eric Woodward as Governor of NSW in 1957. The letter has been written using large type, and Queen Elizabeth’s signature is at the top of the page with the Royal Seal made from red wax. The letter is part of a red leather book with a blue ribbon binder.
A ribbon was used to put the pages together.
I think this is a very special keepsake as it show a big achievement by one member of our family.
