Daily Dose

From The Letters of Lady Mary Wortley Montagu


"His happy constitution (even when he had, with great pains, half demolished it) made him forget everything when he was before a venison pasty, or over a flask of champagne; and I am persuaded he has known more happy moments than any prince on earth."

From a letter to the Countess of Bute, dated Lovere, Sept. 22 (1755)
