He spent a considerable portion of time in the grounds around Government House, and again went on board the Galatea to superin tend the refittiug of the ship. '!A rumour was circulated in town that he in tended to pay a visit to Darlinghurst, and a large number of people, anxious to testify their loyalty, congregated in the South Head Road and its approaches to witness, liia Royal Highness pass. The houses and shops in the road were again de corated' with 'bunting to symbolise the joy of the people at the Prince's recovery.

His visit was entirely unexpected; but as soon as the Sailor -Prince was descried from the ships of war lying in Farm Cove,' the men manned the rigging, and as the boat passed on her way to the Galatea, the blue jackets gave thr...
