His Majesty continued talking the whole of yesterday, his imagination apparently overflowing with a rapid succession of ideas, but with less animation than he had shown the preceding day. His Majesty took his breakfast well, and made at length a tolerable dinner after many interruptions. His Majesty had now been fifty eight hours awake and generally talking, when about six oclock He fell asleep, and has slept fourteen hours with hardly any intermission. His Majesty twice yesterday acknowledged himself to be very feeble. He is looking to day much as usual, and is dressing himself well.
