Note stating a change of date for an Afternoon Party at Buckingham Palace

Scope and Content

This note states that the date of the Afternoon Party has been changed from 21 July to Monday 18 July but does not give a year. The reason given is the state visit of the King and Queen to France. King George VI and Queen Elizabeth made a state visit to France on 19-21 July 1938. A empty envelope sent from St James' Palace and postmarked 4 July 1938 was stored next to this note and is the correct size for it.
