Caledonian Mercury : Thursday 2 December 1790

“Fountain Inn”

Friday, his Royal Highness the Duke of Clarence gave a sumptuous entertainment to the Admirals and Captains at this port, at the Fountain Inn, where were present Admirals Barrington, Roddam, Elliott, and Goodall, and twenty three Captains.

The dinner was served up in a style of elegance which gave great satisfaction to the noble gents and their friends; and the wines, consisting chiefly of champagne, claret and port, circulated plentifully, and were of very first qualities.

His Royal Highness, previous to parting with his ship’s company yesterday, expressed in warm terms, his satisfaction (with very few exceptions) of the conduct of his officers, and seamen, and requested, should he be again called into service, which was extremely probable, that they would all of them follow his fortune.  With three cheers, they, to a man, declared they would instantly join him, whenever they heard their services were wanted, let their situations be ever so distant.

His Royal Highness, at his own personal expense, then gave every man before the mast two complete faits of raiment, and conducted himself in every other respect like an indulgent father to the people under his command - for his princely generosity is unbounded as his rank is exalted; and there are very strong conjectures, that our seamen are indebted to him for the gracious bounty which was ordered to be paid to them in addition to their wages.

C Robinson takes this opportunity of returning thanks to his numerous friends, for the repeated favours he has received since he has kept the above Inn ; and confidently solicits a continuance of the ir support, as it will be his  constant study to provide the best articles, at such charges as will insure their approbation.


The Rocket, that respectable light coach, continues to leave the Fountain at nine every morning ; and arrives at the White Bear, Piccadilly, at seven in the evening.  The proprietors  do not mean to alter, in any respect, the time, or mode of driving the above coach ; being fully assured that no other arrangement would increase the satisfaction which their present has already given.


NB  CR begs to request his friends and the public, who may be travelling post, to Portsmouth, to be peremptory in the orders to the post-boys to drive them to the

Fountain ; as they do not scruple to avail themselves of every artifice, to take them to some other Inn, where their masters may happen to have a connexion.
