TitleLetter [in French] from the Princess of Wales to Mrs. Clayton [GEO/ADD/28/072], expressing amusement over the mix-up of Mrs Clayton's letters to herself and to Geminghen, reporting that she will be going to her children soon and that Princess Amelia is not well, explaining that she will be visiting Lady Pembroke tomorrow on account of the death of her [Lady Pembroke's] daughter and hoping to have the pleasure of seeing Mrs Clayton for a good portion of the day; with transcription in French and English translation [GEO/ADD/28/060a].
Daten.d. [a later pencil note suggests '? July 1720']
WriterCaroline, Princess of Wales (1683-1737)
AddresseeClayton, Charlotte, Mrs William
NotesThe original letter is GEO/ADD/28/072. The French transcription and English translation are on two halves of GEO/ADD/28/060a. Both documents bear the circled number '2', which shows the order in which the original letter was bound.
The proposed year date is presumably suggested because of the subject matter of the letter; another later pencil note refers to pages 173 and 174 of Lady Cowper's diary [presumably the published edition?].
