She also writes of London society, noting that London is 'in the height of gaiety – Balls without end'. Gunning is to attend two this week. She notes that the Duchess of Devonshire is to give three balls, Lady Spencer two, and the Prince among others. She writes that she is almost tired of them, as she longs to see her family.
