Side 41 - WEEP, daughter of a royal line, A Sire's disgrace, a realm's decay ; Ah ! happy if each tear of thine Could wash a father's fault away ! Weep — for thy tears are Virtue's tears — Auspicious to these suffering isles ; And be each drop in future years Repaid thee by thy people's smiles ! THE CHAIN I GAVE.
Side 98 - Lindsay (whom she always honoured with a just regard), to enforce the advice given by Mr Brougham that she should return without delay to her own residence, and submit to the Regent, the young Princess, accompanied by the Duke of York and her governess, who had now been sent for and arrived in a royal carriage, returned to Warwick House, between four and five o'clock in the morning.
Side 91 - I must consider our engagement from this moment to be totally and for ever at an end.

Side 146 - If she does nothing gracefully, she does every thing kindly. " She already possesses a great deal of that knowledge of the past history of this country, that ought to form a part of her peculiar education. " It is exceedingly gratifying to see that she both loves and respects Prince Leopold, whose conduct, indeed, and character, seem justly to deserve those feelings.

He, however, warmly joined in the whole of the deliberations of that singular night. As soon as the flight of the young lady was ascertained, and the place of her retreat discovered, the Regent's officers of...
Side 82 - Augusta shall not at any time leave " the United Kingdom without the permission, in writing, " of His Majesty, or of the Prince Regent acting in the " name and on the behalf of His Majesty, and without Her " Royal Highness
Side 147 - Leopold, who stayed great part of the time : about three she would leave the painting room to take her airing round the grounds in a low phaeton with her ponies, the Prince always walking by her side : at five she would come in and sit to me till seven : at six or before it he would go out with his gun to shoot either hares or rabbits, and return about seven or half-past : soon after which we went to dinner, the Prince and Princess appearing in the drawing-room just as it was served up.
