Thomas Somerville : History of Great Britain During the Reign of Queen Anne; with a Dissertation concerning the Danger of the Protestant Succession

Mary Berry to Mrs Cholmeley, 12 January 1799: 'Somerville's "Anne" is, I think, more dry than his "William," but clear, distinct, impartial, and wonderfully informing; his chapters on the Union of Scotland are particularly so [goes on to note aspects of Scottish situation during Queen Anne's reign, including rebellious elements ('of none of which circumstances I had before any just idea') and to compare this with current situation in Ireland]'.

Century: 1700-1799     Reader/Listener/Group: Mary Berry      Print: Book
