DescriptionAlthough the Prince is tired, he is writing Yarmouth a line to say how truly he regrets not having seen Yarmouth for some days past having himself been very busy. Offering Yarmouth one or two tickets to 'Mrs Bechm's' tomorrow night. As his mother [Queen Charlotte] is coming to his house tomorrow, this will probably impede a meeting but the Prince hopes that he will be able to pay off his debts the following day 'which hang very heavily upon my mind'.

Custodial HistoryPurchased 1959 along with letter from George I to the Duke of Orleans, 1718 (ref GEO/ADD/1/25); warrant from George III to Army Paymasters, 1790, and an autograph of HM, 1810 (refs GEO/ADD/2/55-56); letter from the Duke of Clarence to an unknown recipient, n.d., and an envelope addressed by him to the Reverend Mr Car, 1810 (refs GEO/ADD/4/27-28); address label written by the Duke of Sussex addressed to the King of the French, n.d. (ref GEO/ADD/9/395); and letter from Rear-Admiral Parry to Charles Mott, 1835 (ref GEO/ADD/16/32). Although the accession entry records that some documents from GEO/ADD/6 and GEO/ADD/7 were also purchased (GEO/ADD/6/143-147 and GEO/ADD/7/42) there is some doubt about whether this is really this case.
