Caroline Powys in Canterbury - 7 August, 1798

from Canterbury Journal, 1798, pages 307–308:

They wished us to stay cards, but as no moon and the days getting short, most of the company begg’d to be excused, and we got home by nine, just in time to hear “God save the King,” play’d by the band arranged before Dr. Wolsby’s house in the Green Court, where Prince William had dined with a large party.
