Mrs Clayton [presumably] has added notes on the French transcription that this was written 'when she was queen' [sic]; and 'when Queen' has also been written on the address label attached to GEO/ADD/28/121. A note has also been added to the French transcription by the word 'suspicion' that 'the queen [sic] means Sr Robert Walpole'. A further note has been added to the English translation, explaining that the King had been informed of the correct procedure, but 'would not give entire credit to it till He was informd it was soe [sic] by Mr Clayton'.
