02Jul1866, Prince of Wales Knocked Over

LONDON, July 2nd, 1866.
—We rode. A runaway man and horse, we heard, came full tilt against the Prince of Wales, who was riding with the Princess and the Queen of the Belgians, and knocked him clean over, horse and all. He rode home, and dined out this evening ; so I suppose he is not much hurt, but it seems hardly possible. We dined at Ly. Newburgh's (?) meeting the Duke, the Cokes, a little Prince Borghese, Ld. Clanwilliam, Count Pahlen, and the Duchess of Buccleuch . It was too swell ! and rather silent. Afterwards to Ly. Welby-Gregory.
