Notes

Autograph letter, incomplete or at least unsigned, to Marianna Hammond, a friend of Claire Clairmont, relating Claire's health and problems with inheritance after the death of Sir Timothy Shelley. Mary also relates a piece of contemporary gossip about the death of Lady Elizabeth Aldborough (who married the third earl in 1777): "She sent for a doctor & asked, "Is it sink or swim this time?" 'You need not fearyou will swim'".
