s cabin, & the cabin was entirely filled with hammocks swung one above another.—Thursday.
10. Arrived in Copenhagen at 2 P. M. Found good accommodations at the Hotel Royal.
Monday. 14. Mr. Appleton & Mary G—left us, for London.
Tuesday. 15. In the morning went over the new palace, not yet entirely completed.
It is a fine building, the rooms very neat, most of them carpeted.
The carpet English, & upon the king's apartments of the most ordinary & coarsest Kidderminster.
The Queen's were Brussels, but nothing extraordinary.
In one large room was the king's throne—A gilded chair covered with crimson velvet, & his initials worked in gold upon it. The platform, & the steps by which you ascend to it, were also covered with crimson velvet.
The window-curtains were superb—of crimson velvet & a gold vine wrought upon the edge of them.
The Queen's apartments were more splendid than the king's. She had also a room similar to the king's, with a throne like his & curtains the same.
