The Mary Hamilton Papers : Small watercolour painting of flowers from Lady Mary Webb (née Salvin) to Mary Hamilton

Webb (née Salvin), Mary C.

The Mary Hamilton Papers

<p style='text-align: justify;'>Small watercolour painting of flowers with text written in French on the sheet. Written in Hamilton's hand on the back of the sheet is a note that the piece was given to her by Lady Webb when they were in Spa (see diary, HAM/2/1).</p><p style='text-align: justify;'>The order of the Lady Mary Webb material differs greatly from the sequence in the catalogue, where undated items are placed last. We have attempted to produce an approximate chronological sequence, acknowledging that some notes in summer/autumn 1776 cannot be assigned to a single precise date. The order of the first twenty items in the HAM/1/8/7 series tentatively offered in this edition runs 1, 16, 17, 18, 20, 19, 14, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 15, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12, 13, and the previous and next item links have been arranged accordingly.</p>
