89. Horace Walpole and the Berry Sisters

In Print

2010  ISBN 978-0-903341-8-20 (Paper published by the Borough of Twickenham Local History Society or written by members)

This publication tells the fascinating story of Walpole’s friendship with Agnes and Mary Berry; he was in his seventies, they were in their twenties, yet they formed a close, and mutually advantageous, attachment that lasted to Walpole’s death in 1797 and indeed beyond as Mary Berry was responsible for the posthumous publication of Walpole’s works. The paper is written by John Beardmore, who gave us an excellent talk in 2003 on which this paper is based.
