3446. GEORGE III., Lunacy.—

The lunacy
of the King of England is a decided fact,
notwithstanding all the stuff the English papers
publish about his fevers, delirium, &c. The
truth is that the lunacy declared itself almost at
once, and with as few concomitant complaints
as usually attend the first development of that
disorder.—
