Lady Lyttelton in Holkham, Norfolk - 25 October, 1811
from Letter from Lady Sarah Spencer to her brother, the Hon. Robert Spencer, 25 October 1811, page 124:
The bells are ringing merry peals for the wedding of Lord Downshire and Lady Maria Windsor. Much joy I wish ’em of it. Tied together this morning, to be loosed only in heaven. A good long tug, and a thought which must make a leetle twinge inevitable, I should think, at least on Lady M.’s part, when she looks and listens to the man to whom she must ever after “softly speak and sweetly smile,” whether he talks nonsense or not.
