Records of the Franklin family and collaterals

Esther, his second daughter, was married in October, 1839, to Jacob Prins of Arnheim, Holland. Abraham Franklin went over to arrange the marriage, and on his return travelled with the young Prince Albert, who was on the same boat. They became friendly, and Abraham chaffed him for coming over after "our Princess," saying that he had himself been over to Holland after a "Prins" for his daughter. On leaving, the Prince offered him as a souvenir a set of Saxe-Coburg coins of the year 1835, but he refused to accept them unless he were permitted to give new English coins of equivalent value. The Prince said that he had already received a set from the English Court as a present. Finally Abraham accepted one thaler.

When the engagement of the Prince was announced and his biography appeared in the papers, this visit was not recorded, and Jacob Franklin wrote to his secretary asking whether it was not an error ; and if so, if it might be corrected, as his father had been made to look foolish. The secretary replied that the omission was an error, and that the Prince well recollected the incident and his pleasant conversation with Mr. Abraham Franklin.

The coin came into the possession of Arthur E. Franklin through Jacob and Benjamin Franklin, and when in 1909 his daughter Alice was presented at Court in the reign of Edward VH, he had a bouquet holder made for her with the coin let in at the bottom, and she used it at the ceremony.
