This edition includes 111 letters and a brief note. Written by Miss Carter, they date from October 1737 to May 1804, less than two years before her death, they have not been published before and are a very small portion of the thousands of letters ...
that she sent and received. Part of their value lies in the fact that they provide a better understanding of the learned, religious person whom her nephew, Montagu Pennington, wishes to portray in his "Memoirs of Miss Carter". They show how generous and dependable a friend she was; how faithful in keeping contact; how witty and lighthearted she could be; and how serious. Gwen Hampshire is retired from Oxford University where she held appointments as Librarian at several colleges.
