Save to active project


Amidst all of this fashionable hurly-burly, I was extremely gratified to receive the following letter:

Marlborough House,
Pall Mall, S. W., 26 April, 1887.

Dear Sir: I am desired by the Prince of Wales to
thank you for your invitation. His Royal Highness is
anxious I should see you with reference to it. Perhaps,
therefore, you would kindly make it convenient to call at
Marlborough House.

Would it suit you to call at 11:30 or 5 o’clock, either to
morrow (Wednesday) or Thursday? I am, dear sir.

Yours faithfully,
(Signed) Francis Knollys,
Private Secretary

The Prince of Wales being busily occupied in arranging matters for the Queen’s Jubilee, had but limited latitude
