Brighton News Story – 10 November, 1788: King’s alarming indisposition cuts Prince’s Brighton trip short

The king’s alarming indisposition occasioned the Prince and Mrs Fitzherbert, with their suite to leave Brighthelmstone, at least a fortnight earlier than they otherwise intended to have gone from that place of gaiety and pleasure.  On Friday the Prince’s Household at Brighthelmstone were ordered to town in such haste that they were obliged to take their linen wet from the washer-woman.
