1819 13 Jan Shelburne
1083. R. White (Mrs. Gideon Jr.) to her brother-in-law, Cornelius. She wishes he were in Shelburne "to assist us in passing off some of the gloomy hours off this Winter, doubly so in this unsociable Town which I think is worse in that respect at persent that I ever knew it, you will then say it must indeed be bad; as it was always famed for disagreements & a great deal of form and ceremony among the inhabitants; the Society is small, but might be very pleasant were it not for the Ridiculous party spirit that prevails." Holograph.
