  • Scope and Content
    The King was relatively quiet on 28 and 29 September. He played his harpsichord and flute, and amused himself by imagining marriages between ill-suited partners. He demonstrated a level of self-control by resisting an urge to ‘throw away his things’. On 28 September he went to bed calmly even though he did not want to, but the next evening he violently objected to going to bed and was ‘carried to bed by force’. At his morning medical consultation on 30 September, the King was in high spirits, but delusional, and eventually seemed to be unaware his physicians were in the room.
