guests at Chatsworth House in Chatsworth House, Derbyshire - January, 1815
You cannot imagine what a sensation the Prince’s song excited at Chatsworth.* It was in vain to guard your property; they had it sung and repeated over so often that they all took copies of it, and I dare say, in the course of next week, there will not be a Whig lord or lady in England who will not be in possession of it.
*“When first I met thee warm and young,” &c.
