King et al. in Windsor - mid 19th Century

from Life and Reminiscences of Sir George J. Elvey, page 32:

It is almost needless to add that the anthem was duly performed at the Duke's confirmation. Of this latter event a very vivid recollection is retained by all now living, who, as choristers, took part in the service ; for the kind old King presented them each with a guinea, "to remember," as he said, " that they had been there," and, hearing that one boy, through illness, was unable to be present, the King sent his guinea by a companion, saying that his was " for a remembrance that he had not been there."
