Charlotte, Queen Consort to George III

Description

Enclosing papers delivered by Lady Ilchester and Lady Rosslyn [missing]: 'they lay great Stress upon, and indeed state as inseparable from a Compliance with Your Wish the Circomstance of the proprosed Experiment originating under Your Roof, in Carlton House, and with the Advantage of Your direct and ostensible Support; as giving Weight to their Endeavors, as well as from the general Influence upon Public Opinion...they consider themselves bound, under the same Principle of Duty which forbids them to decline a most difficult and ungracious Task, to represent their Conviction of the Necessity of what they venture to propose, observing that an Interpretation might otherwise be given to a Measure of National Utility, which may Create such a Clamour as would probably render it impossible for any Persons to Continue in the Discharge of the Duty requested of them' Signed and dated at 'Windsor Palace'
