Mary Delany in London - April, 1734

from Autobiography and Correspondence of Mary Granville, Mrs Delany: with interesting Reminiscences of King George the Third and Queen Charlotte, page 452:

These two lines were wrote last post with a design of continuing to the end of the folio sheet, when in came Phil so low and dispirited, that she was hardly alive ; she begged I would take the air with her. My brother was here, and promised he would write to you, and so I gave you up to do a charitable action ; it was so late when I came home that I had not time, and in the afternoon went with Lady Rich to the oratorio, Deborah by name, which I love (besides its own merit which is a great deal) for "sister Deborah's" sake.
