I have two pictures to paint of her for the Prince of Wales. She says, she must see you before she leaves England, which will be in the beginning of September.

Page 334 - Let me see how we can combine in the matter. You will not be able to have an engraving made from so large a canvas. Suppose I paint you a small one of the same subject, of which I will make you a present.
Page 481 - ... respect, Profound simplicity of intellect, And supreme patience. From her mother's knee Faithful and hopeful; wise in charity; Strong in grave peace; in pity circumspect. So held she through her girlhood; as it were An angel-watered lily, that near God Grows and is quiet.
