Account of meeting between Queen Victoria, Prince Albert and Mr Smith, farmer from Dickleburgh.

The account, written in a Norfolk dialect, describes how Mr Smith, a farmer from Dickleburgh was invited by Prince Albert to meet him at Windsor to discuss Mr Smith's recent invention of a new type of plough. Upon Mr Smith's arrival at Windsor the evening prior to the arranged meeting he was directed by a member of castle staff to seek accommodation at a local inn upon which Mr Smith replied '... that dew seem mighty quare, that raily dew, go to an Inn. That's very illconvenient and costive. I didn't come here because I wanted to come, I came because you axed me, and I had to come ...'. The account proceeds to detail Mr Smith's meeting with Queen Victoria and Prince Albert and with their children ('the dear babes'). The account concludes by describing how Mr Smith received a signed bible from Queen Victoria, in which she wrote 'A memento of the visit of a good man'. The account is undated though it appears to have been written soon after the described event took place, which must have been between 1841 and c 1857.
