"The Princess Elizabeth and her youngest brother Henry were, after the death of their father Charles I, confined in Carisbrooke Castle. The Princess perpetually meditated on the bitter sufferings of her father, and fell into a slow and fatal fever. She expired alone, and was found one morning with her fair cheek resting on a Bible, the last gift of her murdered father, and which had been her only consolation in the last sad moments of her life." She died 8th September, 1650. See the Mss. of the Pere Gamache and Miss Strickland's "Lives of the Queens of England." [P. 16; price noted by a contemporary hand.]
