For those of you not familiar with her, Mrs. Delany was born in 1700 in the
minor aristocracy of England, and lived a very long and active life. She
married several times, was well known at the English court, and was an
intimate of Queen Charlotte (wife of George III). She was also well known
for her handwork, including knotting. She also talks about clothing and
fabrics in many of her letters, and describes what was worn at various
court functions, including coronations.
