WriterCaroline, Princess of Wales (1683-1737)
AddresseeClayton, Charlotte, Mrs William
DescriptionDespite a general improvement, Princess Amelia is 'a little out of order in her head'; she took the kinkina infusion 'without reluctance, & the inclination to vomiting is over', and she now has 'noe [sic] heat upon her lungs'. The Princess of Wales discussed with her 'about what your freind [sic] wrote to me as the last resort', which Princess Amelia wished to consider for some days: 'all my hopes are under God in your freind [sic]. What folly is it to be depriv'd of the assistance of such a man'.
'God grant I may have the health of that dear child re-established'.
