Grand documentOriginal passage from the "Grand document".

'Upon taking my leave, she [Queen Caroline] said, she intended a medal for me, but it was not finished. I afterwards sent her, on her own commands, about five and thirty pounds worth of silk, for herself and the Princesses; but never received the medal to this day.'

(Williams 1963, vol. 3, pp. 391-2; Burnett 2020b, p. 1628)
