George Augustus Frederick in Bath - April, 1799

from Diary of Caroline Powys, April 1799, pages 325–326:

The Prince of Wales was at Bath when we were. He was not very popular, from the company he brought with himMr. Sheridan's son, and Mr. Day. […] His Royal Highness was almost constantly at Mrs. Carr’s, attracted by the beauty of her two daughters, the Misses Gubbins, though it was said the most beautiful, Miss Honor, was not the Prince’s favourite, but both play’d and sang to him every evening, and he generally supped there.
