Monday, January 2, was Mr. Tyson’s ball at the Upper Rooms, and I fancy never any master of the ceremonies had a fuller, or one more magnificent, from the number of persons of quality then at Bath […] We were obliged to go an hour before it began to get a tolerable place, but by that means were fortunate to get very good ones near the throne (sofa, so called), placed there for the Royal Family. When they enter’d, the whole company got up, and continued standing while “God Save the King” and “The Duke of York’s March” was played. The Duchess of York, and Princess of Orange were first led up the room and seated on the throne, the ladies of quality on benches on each side. The gentlemen none of them sat down, but the Prince of Wales, Duke of York, the Stadtholder, Prince of Orange, and many noblemen stood and talk’d to the ladies till the ball began, when they mixed with the crowd, which was immense, above 1400.
