posted in: Blog, On This Day | 0

It is strongly rumoured on Monday and Tuesday last at Brighton that the King [George III] would honour that place with his Royal presence on Thursday; and tho’ a number of Thursdays have passed since this gracious visit has been the subject the conversation, expectation is still on tip toe to behold his Majesty at that healthful and fashionable resort.
