I am writing a story. In the story, I will write a letter to a king telling him it is our honour to see him and I will give him a present. I am stuck there because I don't know how to use appropriate words to write it. Could you help? Thanks a lot. Italics shows the letter.
It is our honour to have an opportunity to be allowed to see you. I would like to represent our centre to give you a Chinese calligraphy for a present. Please accept it. Below is the English translation of the calligraphy.
Wish you have both wisdom and blessing.
Thanks a lot

How about this:

This is the English translation of the poem:
We very much hope that you will accept this gift, and wish you blessings and wisdom.
Your humble servant,
Re: a letter
thanks a lot.
I wonder if the word 'gift' could be replaced by 'present' because 'gift' sounds something free of charge and from God; for example, a gifted child. Is it appropriate to speak with a king like this?
