'Their Graces the Duke and Duchess of Albans arrived at Scarborough this day, and in the afternoon paid me a visit, accompanied by Lord Amelius, and the Ladies Beauclerk. The Duchess entered her name in my library subscription book. A newspaper of the day was placed in her Grace's hands, who seated herself and read aloud a paragraph - the great gaiety and spirit in a silver toned voice, to her Grace's party.'
