Duchess of Portland et al. in Queen's House - 1784

from The Autobiography and Correspondence of Mary Granville, Mrs Delany, page 213:

I had the courage to obey their Majesties' commands in waiting on them at the Queen's house last night with the Duchess of Portland. It was quieter than one of my own drawing-rooms; nobody there but the King and Queen, the 5 princesses, and Lady Charlotte Finch. It was next to the music-room, where we had a very fine concert.
