Letter from Queen Charlotte to Mrs Mary Delany

Date Created

15 December 1781


Charlotte, Queen Consort to George III

I must therefore desire that Mrs Delany will wear this little Pocket Book in order to remember at times, when no dearer Person's are present, a very sincere well wisher, Friend, and affectionate Queen' Signed and dated at the Queens Lodge, Windsor With envelope
