Autograph Letter (third person, unsigned) to William Pitt, 1 page 4to (in perfect condition with integral endorsed leaf), Queen's House, 8 May 1787. Relating to George Prince of Wales's request that his father should settle his debts and increase his income.
Stating that on his return from reviewing the Horse Guards he has found Pitt's box and is anxious to see him as early as possible as he is keen to hear many particulars which Mr Pitt could not state in the compass of a letter, and commenting 'It is surprising the P. of Wales should yet be harping on an encrease of Income when that has be[en] already so clearly refused'.
Letters from George III to any of his prime ministers are of great rarity on the market.
