Not illustrated. 1866 edition. Excerpt: ...for my corrections. I will make Kirgate write to him, for I have told you that I am still here. We have had much rain but no flood, and yesterday and to-day have exhibited Florentine skies. From town I know nothing but that on Friday, after the King's speech, Earl Stanhope made a most frantic speech on the National Assembly, and against Calonne's book, which he wanted to have taken up for high treason. He was every minute interrupted by loud bursts of laughter, which was all the answer he received or deserved. His suffragan, Price, has published a short, sneaking, equivocal answer to Burke, in which he pretends his triumph over the King of France alluded to July, not to October, tho' his sermon was preached in November. Credat--but not Judaeus Apella--as Mr. Burke so wittily says of the assignats. Mr. Grenville, the Secretary of State, is made a peer; they say to assist the Chancellor in the House of Lords Yet the papers pretend the Chancellor is out of humour and will resign; the first may be true, the latter probably not. Richmond, my metropolis, flourishes exceedingly. TheD. of Clarence arrived at his palace there last night, between eleven and twelve, as I came from Lady Douglas. His eldest brother and Sirs. Fitzherbert dine there to-day, with the D. of Queens-bury, as his Grace, who called here this morning, told me, on the very spot where lived Charles I., and where are the portraits of his principal courtiers, from Cornbury. Q. has taken to that place at last, and has frequently company and music there in an evening. I intend to go. The very old uncle of the Abbe Nichols is dead, and, as he tells me, has left well to his mother and him, and he is come to live there with her, and I shall hear him sing, I conclude, at the Duke's concerts....
