posted in: Blog, On This Day | 0

Brighton Races.  The prince, though not so corpulent as heretofore, looks remarkably well.  His Royal Highness rode to the course each day on his grey charger, and returned in his barouche and six, accompanied by Mr Day &c.  His first appearance on the course was in a plain blue coat, white hat, and mankeen musquito trousers; and the following days in the uniform of his regiment.
