At nine o’clock I went to the Quirinal with Lady Char[lotte], and Mr. Petre, to see the Consistory for the reception of the twelve new cardinals. […] The old cardinals went to fetch the new ones, who were each introduced between two old ones, and thus brought in from the great door of the room to the Pope's feet. Then one of the assistants addressed a short speech to them, not a word of which was heard where I was; then each cardinal knelt at the Pope's feet, who placed, or rather hung, a red hat upon his head for an instant, addressing some words to him; then he kissed the Pope’s foot, and received from him the accolade, which he immediately gave and received back again from all his new brethren, the old cardinals. This ceremony was not so long as one might expect. As soon as the hat was on the head, and the accolades given, the Pope retired into his own apartments; the throne upon which he had been seated was carried away, and all the cardinals, old and new, with everyone else, entered the chapel singing the ‘Te Deum.’
