Crowns[edit]

I wish to ask you what is meant by the word "crowns"?

"for your forwardness you have deserved rewards and crowns"

I think in this context it means crowns as in the old english coins - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Crown_%28English_coin%29

so "for your forwardness you have deserved rewards and crowns" means something like "for your forwardness you have deserved rewards and riches"
