“Temple, Wedy.

“. . . The only remarkable thing I have to tell you is that yesterday arrived a formal annunciation of our blessed Lady, the Pss. of Wales, that early in May she is to appear and make herself manifest in Kensington Palace. I had warned her of her perils at Xmas, and she writes the letter to Jenky, officially, on 11th Jany. This is pretty well for a morning cordial to our illustrious Regent. Ferguson, M. Taylor and I t’other day made a party and went to the Stakes—the Jockey* in high force as also was Mister Chairles Moris. The said Jy. begins to think the [illegible] blown upon by the great ribbon trade in which P. has been dabbling; for he was pleased to speak of ‘ribbons of all sorts—blue and red,’ a kind of disrespect not customary with him.

“I dined with Erskine t’other day in a large party, and he seems much in fear of that subject being broached. I took occasion to congratulate him twice of happy events that had happened since we met, and made each time a short pause, so that he expected the Thistle was coming out; but I added—the peace with America and Tom’s marriage. He was clearly hustled about his new honour. Romilly made a very good joke about it: he called him ‘The Green Man and Still,’ alluding to his silence in the House of Lords.”†
