3) Mr Horace Walpole thinks both these Originals at Length of Lord & Lady Townshend are stil in my hands
to be ready at his call when his house in the country is furnish'd.
Memorand Mrs Selwyn knows that Lady Townshend borrowed a
rich Peticoat that had been the Queens of her for the Painter
to put to her Picture in order__
