Military History/medal translation


This is a follow-up to the questions I submitted regarding a Swedish medal from 1869.
I read the lettering on the back as: K.t  StPat  Salisk
Can you tell me what that might mean?

I interpret it (as I wrote on my other site) as Kungl. Patriotiska Sällskapet = Kungliga Patriotiska Sällskapet. Kunglig(a)= Kingly in English = Royal. So The Royal Patriotic Society. It hands out medals for good deeds. In this case for good farming. All letters are not in place or OK. But this is the only interpretation I can give you!
