Extract from Victor Silverstone's Newsletter Edition Eight original research on who actually
played with the chips in 1765

Silverstone’s research took him to a diary called

“The Letters and Journals of Lady Mary Coke”.


Besides Lady Mary recording her wins and losses at cards she also included the following extract of her acquaintance with Queen Charlotte.

”Sunday July 24th 1774
The King and Queen remained in Kew Garden all the evening and I fancy that Lady Litchfield was with them. Lady Greenwich will tell you that the Duchess of Argyle plays at cards with their majesties almost every evening. The situation of the House she is in being so convenient, I imagine she will contrive not to go to Scotland this year. “
