It is therefore that We do invest (recipient's name) into the Order of the Monkey. We charge that [he/she] continue to bring the same level of festivity and frolic to all, leaving always in [his/her] wake a trail of stardust and the memory of happy music.
Done by Our Hands this (date) day of (month), Anno Societatis (year), being (year) in the common reckoning of years.
