338LADY HOWARD TO THE REV. MR. VILLARS"Do not start at this proposal; it is time that she should see something of the world. When young people are too rigidly sequestered from it, their lively and romantic imaginations paint it to them as a paradise of which they have been beguiled; but when they are shown it properly, and in due time, they see it such as it really is, equally shared by pain and pleasure, hope and disappointment."https://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/8/82/ThomasBowlesLeicesterSquare1753.jpgWikimedia CommonsView of Leicester Square, London, by Thomas BowlesLady Howard
4312MR. VILLARS TO LADY HOWARD"You must not, Madam, expect too much from my pupil; she is quite a little rustic, and knows nothing of the world; and though her education has been the best I could bestow in this retired place, to which Dorchester, the nearest town, is seven miles distant..."https://s-media-cache-ak0.pinimg.com/736x/69/15/39/691539b3e30e858f3bb653514f4a001c.jpg"Rural Life", 1783; LWL 783.02.24.03 lwlpr05138"Rural Life" (1783), from the Lewis Walpole LibraryVillars

6LADY HOWARD TO THE REV. MR. VILLARS"Her face and person answer my most refined ideas of complete beauty: and this, though a subject of praise less important to you, or, to me than any other, is yet so striking, it is not possible to pass it unnoticed. Had I not known from whom she received her education, I should at first sight of so perfect a face, have been in pain for her understanding; since it has been long and justly remarked, that folly has ever sought alliance with beauty."https://s-media-cache-ak0.pinimg.com/736x/c2/9f/b8/c29fb8a57a36c81c525c8ebe6c0d7919.jpghttp://www.sothebys.com/en/auctions/ecatalogue/lot.119.html/2015/dillee-dynastie-experts-collectionneurs-pf1541 Portrait de Jeune Fille Tenant un Éventail (nd)Lady Howard#cccccc
