Charles C.F. Greville et al. in The Royal Lodge, Windsor - 13 June, 1827, at night

from Journal entry, 17 June 1827, pages 98-99:

I was at the Royal Lodge for one night last Wednesday […] The evening passed off tolerably, owing to the Tyrolese, whom Esterhazy brought down to amuse the King, and he was so pleased with them that he made them sing and dance before him the whole evening; the women kissed his face and the men his hand, and he talked to them in German.
