Excerpt from Elizabeth Montagu, the Queen of the Blue-Stockings, Vol. 1 of 2: Her Correspondence From 1720 to 1761
A great and terrible break in this book was caused by the death of my beloved husband in May, 1904, after a long, lingering illness. I doubt if I should have tak... en courage to resume my pen if it had not been for my friend Mr. A. M. Broadley, whose interest in my literary work and affectionate solicitude for myself has been a kindly spur to goad me on to action, so as to complete the present volumes To him I tender my thanks for past and present encouragement, as well as many other kindnesses.
