"Hanger Hill", to [Augusta Leigh] by Anne Isabella Milbanke Byron Byron( )

1 edition published in 1830 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Reporting on Ada's health; responding to the accusations she made in her letter of December; defending her decisions with regard to the nomination of a Trustee with respect to her Marriage Settlement; asserting that she had "no right or claim to interfere in the nomination of a Trustee nor of Solicitors under my Marriage Settlement. 2. That you had no reason whatever to doubt that I should promote the interests of yourself & your family by every just means in my power, nor to mistrust my consideration for your feelings as well as your circumstances. That my mode of proceeding at the time of the Nomination could not be regarded as offensive to you in any respect, nor as calculated to excite your 'indignation'; 3rd. That you had no reason whatever to suspect Dr. Lushington of having acted the dishonorable part which you imputed to him - viz. that of preconserting with Mr. D. Kinnaird a plan for obtaining the Trusteeship -- also, -- that Dr. Lushington had not given you any cause to apprehend that his conduct as Trustee would be prejudicial to your interests or unfriendly to you personally. As for the complaint of my having made a communication of a legal nature thro' my Solicitor (preceded however by a letter from myself) you will recollect that there was no other resource after the objections which you had expressed to any transactions with Dr. Lushington himself -- and that you were previously(?) on good terms with that Solicitor, Mr. Wharton. - Such an accusation is really too absurd. If after such consideration you cannot admit that my assertions are perfectly well founded, I must beg you to signify your dissent by silence on the subject."
