• "The tables on this occasion were dressed with white cloths and decorated a lajardi-nihre. The silver antique jard'nieres were filled with ferns and spring flowers, peeping out of mosses of various kinds. Large silver bowls and epergnes on the side-board and side tables were filled with exquisite arrangements of hyacinths, tulips, wood violets, snowdrops, etc., in mosaic patterns; whilst hanging baskets graced the windows, filled with the spiritulle cyclamen light foliage, interspersed with yellow and red flowers, that gave the grand old oak hall a splendid appearance. The display of antique plate would have delighted the heart of the most enthusiastic antiquary, and the tout ensemble seemed to give the young prince much pleasure.

"The vanilla milk, which, by the way, was half cream, found great favor, and was served steaming hot in silver cups. Some added curacoa to It, others a. petit verre de Cognac, but the majority preferred the sweet beverage simply as prepared in the kitchen by my worthy old friend, the chef, who is too modest to allow me to give his name".

"The room was decorated with palms, choice tropical plants, and exqusite exotic flowers, forming- a complete change to the morning decorations. The band played in an ante-room adjacent, which was curtained off, and also profusely decorated with mirrors and floral beauties. The din-ner service was of very handsome old china, the floral decorations on the table were laid in the Oriental style now so fashionable".
