Just a note to say that I am writing a biography of Constance Savery, one of whose books is on your reading list. I am presently immersed in over a thousand Savery family letters and a stack of family diaries. I also have a web site devoted to the rest of Savery's books and her other writings. Google "Constance Savery" and you will find it.
