Catalogue Note

Sir James Fellowes (c. 1771–1857), a physician, was a friend and literary executor to Mrs. Piozzi, who left him her manuscripts and annotated copies of her publications. She writes: "What a shame! To be fast asleep in my Bed and never hear your knock at the Door! Why this was indeed hasta las tardas but I was weary of Mr. Piozzi's company that they praise so, and the dear old stories of 40 & 50 years ago, which Mr. Northcote relates, some truly, some falsely."
