His Majesty's cold continued to show itself thru' yesterday, but did not produce any more than ordinary irritability. His Majesty ate about half the meat that was brought Him at dinner, but finish'd afterwards a plate of jelly. About four oclock His Majesty very quietly removed his truss, and threw it away; but has had it replaced this morning without making any objection to it. His Majesty slept nearly eight hours in the night, and his cold seems to be less troublesome this morning.
