PRIVY COUNCIL OFFICE, WHITEHALL, is part of the south end of the present range of buildings commonly known as the Treasury, as altered by Mr. Barry in 1847-48. Here are kept the minutes of the Privy Councils of the Crown. A minute of the reign of James II. contains the original depositions attesting the birth of the Prince of Wales, afterwards known as the Old Pretender.
