posted in: Blog, On This Day | 0

The lad who drove the Prince on Wednesday, in turning into the town of Cuckfield, ran against a hack chaise belonging to Crawley, that was going the contrary way with a Lady in it, by which accident the front panel of the chaise was driven in by the pole of the Prince’s carriage, but without doing any injury to the Lady.  His Royal Highness stopped to enquire if any material injury had been received, and on being answered a negative, proceeded on his journey.
