DescriptionThanking George for enquiring about the Duke's health. He is feeling better but still needs time, so he will not be able to join the Prince in Brighton. The Duke had a letter from Frederick [Duke of York and Albany] from Berlin complaining of the King impeding his wedding, but from Fawkener [William, Envoy Extraordinary and Minister Plenipotentiary on a Special Mission to Petersburg] he received news that the wedding will take place soon.
The accounts from Weymouth [where the King was holidaying] are ridiculous and absurd.
