"Mrs. Piozzi hopes nothing is owing to Mr Saltarelli, pray ask him, likewise Jefferies & Jones & Evans the Grocer, and poor Mr Smith Chandler... buy two Pots of Walker's Tooth Electuary in St. James's Street, & ask how many brown blinds came down, Jacob's Wife knows there were six in Hanover Square..."; health, "... pray send my Books and my Pills. The Pills above all things, for Sir Lucas Pepys bid me take on every night and they keep me very well indeed... My Master has been very bad indeed; and that just at coming into a new House..."; family and friends, "... make Miss Thrales welcome at Streatham, and Mr. Murphy [Arthur Murphy]... Jacob must find Mr. Murphy and follow him with the enclosed Letter"; finances, "we cannot keep two houses in Times like these, and live in a Third beside..."; prices of agricultural produce, "Wheat sold last Market for Twenty Shillings the Bushel and Oats at five Shillings"; problems with servants, "We send this by William Fleet, who shall never drive me again, or Touch a Horse of mine. We were engaged to dine with Lady Orkney, & go at Night with her to Denbeigh Assembly: but the Coachman... could not be found... and only returned just time enough to take us out. His Master scolded him and he gave his Master Warning, & began to drive us to Lady Orkney's. But on the Road he set Spurs into Mole; and checked him till the Blood ran down, and frighten'd me: and my Master too... and I think we all escaped Death only by Providence of God. He made no excuse, and he show'd no concern for terrifying me almost into Fits, and letting my clothes be spoiled by the necessity of putting down all the Glass Windows, while Mole kicked up the Dirt, and broke the Boot, and was likely to kill himself... Jacob and his Wife must not let in Barnard the Footman he has been sent away for very bad Behaviour...", 1 letter with piece working loose, another extensively creased and torn but with text largely intact, numerous tears, some where opened, others tears along folds, browned; and 2 other covering notes, both later, "Letters from Mrs. Piozzi" and "Dr Johnsons Letters to Mrs. Lucy Porter", v.s., v.d. "In these business letters she [Hester Piozzi] seems less studied, indeed indeed more genuinely, casual, than in the correspondence with her friends. Never writing down to her stewards, for example, she admitted her sense of dependence upon them (albeit expressed somewhat peremptorily) and therefore her gratitude." - Bloom & Bloom, The Piozzi Letters. Streatham Park. After the death of Henry Thrale in 1781, Streatham Park was leased out, the first tenant being Lord Shelburne, Prime Minister. In 1790 Hester and Gabriel Piozzi returned to live there and for the next six years she took up again her mantle of literary hostess and refurbished the house in an Italianate style. Thereafter they decided to live in north Wales, building Brynbella House, near St Asaph. Streatham Park was then leased to various tenants, including Peter Giles (d. 1830), grain merchant, at a rent of £550 per annum. Jacob Weston (1742-1820), steward of Streatham Park. Provenance: From the sale of furnishings and other items at Brynbella in 1874 to Philip Pearson Pennant (b. 1834) who was renting the house until his own, Nantlys, a large house was built nearby. The Pennants were distant relatives of Thomas Pennant (1726-98), the great Welsh naturalist and topographer, from whose family they had inherited the Bodfari estate in North Wales. Louisa Fielding, his great granddaughter and last of his line died in 1853 and the estates were entailed to the Pearson Pennant family. ***Unpublished.
