At half past ten o’clock I went with the Prince and Princess Lowenstein, their son, and my sister, to Mr. Canning’s, the Secretary of State, who received for the first time the King and Queen of the Sandwich Islands! They arrived in the midst of a numerous assembly of all the best society, and all en grande toilette for a large assembly given at Northumberland House. […] From the gallery Mr. Canning, still holding the Queen’s hand, conducted them through the apartment and under the verandah of the garden, where the band of the Guards regiment in their full uniform was playing military airs. Her savage majesty appeared much more occupied by the red-plumed hats of the musicians than by the music. She ought to have been pleased to see that the officer’s helmet of her court surpassed them as to colour.
