- Burney, Fanny, 1752-1840.
- Fanny Burney refers to her visit with Mary Hamilton in London and mentions "...the uneasiness which dampt all my pleasure even in the charming party at Hampton. I hope when she [Mary] hears that the fatal termination of that suspense, made me wish for nothing but to hasten into the country to recruuit both my health & spirits..." This was, perhaps, referring to a disappointment in love, when the ambiguous attentions of a young clergyman came to nothing. In a postscript she mentions "a string of the most uncomfortable circumstances" and asks to be remembered to Mrs. Vesey and Mr. and Mrs. Pepys.
