On 15 April 1776 the House of Lords convened as a jury in Westminster Hall to try the Duchess of Kingston for bigamy. The diarist Anna Larpent, then an unmarried girl of eighteen, was among the assembled spectators. She recorded her informed observations with immediacy and in vibrant detail. Recently rediscovered at the Lewis Walpole Library, Yale University, her manuscript is reproduced here in its entirety.
