NotesThe original letter is GEO/ADD/28/149. The English transcription begins on GEO/ADD/021a and continues on one half of GEO/ADD/28/065 part2. All these documents bear the circled number '80', which shows the order in which the original letter was bound.
Written from the Hague. The Princess of Orange appears to have used both Old Style and New Style dating. A later pencil note has suggested the year date may be 1734; but another, more recent, pencil note has suggested 1735 as more likely, which is possibly more correct, as it seems it was clear the Princess was not pregnant [the implied subject of the letter] by April 1735.

As two documents are shown on a single image the relevant document has been highlighted for ease of use. To see the other document please go to GEO/ADD/28/065 part 1.
