2pp., 12mo. 33 lines of text, written in a close, neat hand. Good, on lightly-aged paper. She begins with a five-line 'encomium', before assuring Mrs Drysdale that she is 'pretty safe': 'I have been considered By People of the Highest Rank to whom I was known merely as a private teacher &c &c of moral virtues To possess of for the highest talents & the purest Virtues I have been familiar I need not say why. None of these I ever flattered. I should Consider it degrading myself & insulting them.' There follows a reference to 'that Angeli being who has been so long hovering on the brink of that eternity where her serene & happy spirit will escape from the feeble frame that has so long incumbered it'. She has received 'wonderful tidings from America'. There is a reference to her last surviving child John, who is 'at Seacliff with his Wife'. She ends 'It is odd enough that the pigeons I sent you should fly back to me with Feathers on after this long ab[s]ence. I suppose you understand my Bright wit you would be sorry [to] lose so good a Joke perhaps the last from yours | Sincerely [signed] Anne Grant'. N° de ref. de la librería 11316
