Help with slideObject

I have the following code:

var sliderInstance = $(".royalSlider").data('royalSlider');
sliderInstance.ev.on('rsAfterContentSet', function(e, slideObject) {
   // Test code

In this case, the rsSlide represented by sliderInstance contains a div that contains an empty <p> element and of course, the <img>. I'm new to jQuery and want to replace the empty <p> element with my globalCaption <div>. I have tried various select attempts in Firebug but have not been able to get hold of any children, let alone the <p>. Is there any chance you could give me a pointer as to how to do this?

Many thanks.

    I don't really understand why you need this and why you can't edit directly slider markup, to replace p with div:

    The <p> is a place holder and yes, I could use a <div>. However, that
    wasn't really the issue; the issue was how to target and get a reference
    to either the <p> or the <div> so that I could add the content of the
    globalCaption to it.

    I kept trying to "select", rather than the "find" method you have used in
    your sample code. I'll get up to speed with jQuery soon so many thanks for
    your response and patience. I tried to find documentation on the
    slideObject object model but there didn't seem to be any.

    slideObject.content holds generated slide markup
    slideObject.holder holds slide container which is empty until slide is loaded

    // will return you p tag from first slide
