From the inhabitants of the Borough of Brighthelmstone: “To his Royal Highness the Prince of Wales. May it please your Royal Highness. We, the Chief Magistrates and other Inhabitants of the ancient Borough of Lewes, beg leave to present our unfeigned congratulations to your Royal Highness, on your late nuptials with her serene highness the Princess Caroline of Brunswick”.

The superb stables erecting at Brighton for the Prince of Wales, are forwarding with great activity; but we understand they cannot be finished during the ensuring season, although a part of his Royal Highness’s stud will be stabled there. The exterior of the above structure is of an octagon figure, with two grand entrances to the east and west; the interior is an elegant rotunda, having twelve separate stables, containing together 42 spacious stalls; each stable has a very large fan light over its door, pointing to the centre; above the stables are apartments for grooms, hay lofts, and granaries and the whole is capt and lighted by a noble dome. On the North side, a covered ride of several hundred feet in length is to be added; and on the south a grand tennis court. The outside windows are very like Gothic, but we understand the general architecture is denominated Moorish.
