Mother Knows Best

"Many thanks for your invitation to Althorp, indeed I have a great pleasure in going to see you there or elsewhere sometime or other, but I always resolved not to visit that place till your father's monument should be put up - as I hate to have (what so often has happened) those sort of things talked of and not done."

Lady Spencer to John 2nd Earl Spencer
September 1786
