An evocative catalogue of the furnishings of one of Charles II's royal yachts. Arlington orders lavish furnishings for the King's bedchamber ("...to be put up for strangers when his Majestie is not there..."), a second cabin under the bedchamber, the dining room, the Captain's cabin, and five additional cabins. The Charlotte, one of several yachts commissioned by Charles II, is described in the contemporary endorsement as being "new built at Wollwidge".
