The Mary Hamilton Papers

<p style='text-align: justify;'>Letter from Princess Augusta Sophia to Mary Hamilton. She apologises for her actions the night before and asks her leave to tell her the whole story of 'what we did at Windsor'. After awaking they [presumably Augusta and other members of the Royal family] saw the King and Queen and after breakfast they went to the castle and heard the 'Cornet in the church because it was to try them with the Organ and Clarinets'. Her brothers and the King then took a walk in the park. She went to a Miss Grolten's[?] room where she looked out of the window and saw the 'Prince of Wales fall flat upon his face' though he did not hurt himself too badly and ate a 'very good dinner'. She ends her letter noting that her brothers, the King and all the gentleman 'got into there Coach and where very sory to Part with our Pretty Rooms at dear dear Windsor' [sic].</p>
