Harpur (née Greville), Frances Elizabeth

The Mary Hamilton Papers

<p style='text-align: justify;'>Letter from Lady Frances Harpur to Mary Hamilton. The letter relates to the performance of Handel's <i><i>Messiah</i></i> at Westminster Abbey. Harpur writes that she will not be able to 'accommodate' Hamilton on the 26th as she has a ticket for the last day only and she only wishes to hear [Handel's] <i><i>Messiah</i></i>. Lord Exeter had given her two tickets for his box and she is to attend with Lady Caroline Peachy. If she decides not to attend she may give her ticket away 'which will serve for any other place in the Abbey' but she will not be able to give the seat in Lord Exeter's box away.</p>
