  • Scope and Content
    Saying that the general opinion was that the King was getting better, but that the Duke of Clarence (the King’s son and future William IV) had seen ‘something in the King that convinced him that he must soon be confined again.’ Thomas reports that the King told him he had had a restless night, but tried to hide the extent of any discomfort from his wife, Queen Charlotte. While he and Thomas were walking, the King ‘frequently called out I am now perfectly well and my Q[ueen] – my Q[ueen] – has saved me.’ Thomas discusses the King’s intention to go to Windsor tomorrow, and hopes that Lord Eldon will convince the King not to go to Weymouth too soon.
