Brighton News Story – 29 October, 1792: Prince visits Nuns in Brighton

The Nuns, whose arrival at Brighthelmstone was mentioned in our last paper, were driven from a Concent in Lille.  At the time of their debarkation they had only about thirty pounds remaining, all the valuables of the convent having been seized by the regenerate French.  The Prince and Mrs Fitzherbert paid them a long visit at the New Ship Inn, after which His Highness set on foot some subscription for their relief, which in a short time, amounted to upwards of one hundred pounds.
