'I know not what Prince Leopold will say to it [the character of Athelstane]. He had a bad cold and Sir Robert Gardiner went to keep him company and read "Ivanhoe" to him last Saturday. He was so delighted he would not let him leave off till one in the morning, and entered with the zeal of a contemporary into the Saxon cause'.
