Date17/28 June [a later pencil note has added '1735']
WriterAnne, Princess of Orange (1709-1759)
AddresseeSundon, Charlotte, Lady
NotesThe original letter is GEO/ADD/28/151. The French transcription is on GEO/ADD/28/065a. Both documents bear the circled number '81', 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. The Princess of Orange appears to have used both Old Style and New Style dating.
