TitleLetter [in French] from the Princess of Wales to Mrs. Clayton [GEO/ADD/28/087], reporting that there is no possibility of seeing Lord Sunderland, offering her assistance and assuring her that she [the Princess] is not responsible for the removal of Mr Clayton from the Treasury, and commenting that the Ministry are suggesting that the Prince [presumably of Wales] will be forced to 'take all his servants by the Kings [sic] appointment which is as much as to say they will dispose of the Prince's property'; with transcription in French and English translation [GEO/ADD/28/039].
Daten.d. [a later pencil note suggests '?1718']
WriterCaroline, Princess of Wales (1683-1737)
AddresseeClayton, Charlotte, Mrs William
DescriptionLord Sunderland fears the Princess so much that 'he defers it from day to day'. The Princess also remarks on 'my own misfortune as to my children & their cruelty'.
NotesThe original letter is GEO/ADD/28/087. The French transcription and English translation are on two halves of GEO/ADD/28/039. Both documents bear the circled number '16', which shows the order in which the original letter was bound.
The pencil date proposed is presumably in connection with the Princess's domestic problems and possibly the action taken against Mr Clayton.
