In Their Own Words

August 13, 1735

Georgia Silk Presented to Queen

The Earl of Egmont recorded in his journal of the proceedings of the Trustees:

“This 13 August 1735 Sr. Tho. Lomb Aldn. of London carry’d the Silk received from Georgia to her Majesty, and took her direction how She would have it work’d up into a Suit of Cloathes [sic] for her. She appear’d much pleased with it, and Sr. Thomas declared to her that he prefer’d it to the Piedmontese Silk in every respect, and particularly that it has less wast [sic].”
