18 May 1785

Rocca Sorrentina

Godfather, I write in haste to warn you that one of Calonne’s men calling himself “Lord Ian” has presented himself at The Haven on the pretext of leaving a painting for my inspection and consideration.

I assure you that Fanny knows nothing of his real purpose or his identity, so there is little chance that she revealed any news of your…

May 1875

My Dear Friend, 

It is good to hear from you.  Before I address the contents of your letter, let me assure you that all is well here at The Haven.  The vineyard looks spectacular and I look forward to the harvest.  There have been no callers in your absence, other than that very interesting gentleman from the new world who attended your last salon, Lord Ian.  He brought a painting he was hoping to have your opinion of.  I was happy to offer him my own view, but he did…

Rocca Sorrentina

14 May 1785

Arriving in Rocca Sorrentina, Lorsagne writes to Fanny Burney, reporting on Mrs. Piozzi's recovery and her "great good friend" Lucien's criticism of her extravagance

April of 1785

Rocca Sorrentina

Dearest Fanny,

I write you in haste having only arrived in Rocca Sorrentina the previous day. As you can imagine, I find myself as yet unsettled. Oh, that I could make the journey from The Haven to this lovely island as does a bird, with wings instead of bouncing over waters that invariably roil up to torment my…
