Frances Calvert et al. in Hatfield - 24 July, 1814

from Journal entry, 27 July 1814, pages 233–234:

Mr. C[alvert] and I went to Hatfield on Sunday to meet my Lords the Judges. The Duke of Wellington was there, and before dinner we all assembled in King James’s Room, and the Corporations of Hertford and St. Albans came and presented him with the freedom of their boroughs in gold boxes. They made him a speech to which he replied. There were about 120 people at dinner, a very fine one, and the band playing all the time.
