SOLD BY ORDER OF THE 12TH DUKE OF NORTHUMBERLAND AND THE TRUSTEES OF THE NORTHUMBERLAND ESTATES.
A charming pair of letters revealing the informal personality of Mary II. These letters were written to Anne (née Hatton), Countess of Nottingham (1668-1743), who had been appointed a Lady of the Bedchamber in 1691. These letters were written during one of Lady Nottingham's many confinements; she had 22 children, and even the Queen, although she writes that she looks forward to hearing whether the new baby is a boy or a girl, was moved to add that "I think after the number you have tis not much matter which".
