My dear Lawrence,
I am this moment come from Carleton House. I did not myself see The Prince of Wales; but His royal Highness desired McMahon to tell me how highly pleased he is with the drawing; but would submit to your consideration whether or not the forehead is a little too round -and in obedience to His Royal Highness I do submit it to your consideration. -
The Prince, my dear Lawrence, is charmed with the Portrait - Mr. Smirke writes to-night to the Engraver at Birmingham, of whom his father has so favourable an opinion.
Yours, J.P. Kemble.
Octr. 28th 1808
