Evidence:
Letter to Miss Ourry June 4 1791 'Her sister, in whose arms she died, was immediately seized with the same disorder, and met her death with the same well-grounded heroism. "Surely to blissful realms those souls are flown That never flatter?d, censur?d, envied, strove" My dear, you will excuse this digressive tribute to departed excellence. What havoc has been lately made in the little circle of those I loved!'
