Countess Granville et al. in The Hague - 20 April, 1824

from Letter from Lady Granville to her sister, Lady G. Morpeth, 18 April 1824, page 280:

It is too fine, quite like summer. Luckily for the boys the Prince of Orange had been laying the first stone of the new barracks; therefore the people were all about, the band playing and soldiers parading. Even Gearing [the boys’ nurse] says ‘It is very cheerful.’
