TitleLetter from William Porden Kay to his grandfather William Porden, relating to his stay in Brighton
Date9 Dec [1816]
DescriptionThanks for letter, but notices he has made a mistake on purpose by putting in his affectionate Uncle rather than his affectionate Grandfather; he would like to see the sun rise but it is too cold; she has given him great honour in giving him the title William Porden Kay, Esq; the Queen came down on Monday, with description of postilion's clothes; the 10th Hussars were drawn along Marlborough Place to receive the Queen.
Only dated 9 Dec, but written in 1816 based on content of letter of her sister Mary Ann Kay of the same date.
