DescriptionPrince William is writing to update his brother on his situation. The King has not decided yet either to which station to assign him - Mediterranean or Plymouth - or what to do with Hargood [Sir William?] or Mainwaring [Jemmett Mainwaring].
He asks the Prince of Wales for a couple of recommendations: Captain Richard Goodwin Keats, under whom Prince William served as midshipman; and Mr Waddington, who was Chaplain to Prince George. The latter should be recommended to the Chancellor [Lord Thurlow].
He received through Molloy [Lieutenant Anthony James Pye Molloy] the Prince of Wales' hair and a sword for which he is very grateful.
