Daten.d. [a later pencil note suggests '? end 1719']
WriterCaroline, Princess of Wales (1683-1737)

NotesThe original letter is GEO/ADD/28/107. The French transcription and English translation are on two halves of GEO/ADD/28/057. Both documents bear the circled number '36', which shows the order in which the original letter was bound.
A later pencil note suggests that this letter might be referring to the subject of the South Sea Bubble, from which the proposed date is presumably taken.
A later pencil note attached to the slip with the wax seal notes 'End Nov. or beginning Dec. 1726', but it is not clear to what this refers.
LanguageFrench; English
Extent2 documents (3 pages; 1 for each document, and 1 for the loose slip with the wax seal)
