by George Henry Glasse ( Book )
in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide
The great majority of these letters are addressed to George Henry Glasse, with most of the remainder addressed to his father Samuel Glasse. The earlier letters, mostly from 1778 to 1788 in volumes 1 and 8, are largely concerned with Oxford matters, Glasse's literary interests, and his establishment at Hanwell. The bulk of the letters from 1802 onward reflect Glasse's increased preoccupation with social status as a domestic chaplain to the nobility, and concern social invitations, financial negotiations, and patronage positions. Events in Glasse's life which attract extensive attention in these letters are: his publication of a Greek translation of William Mason's Caractacus in 1781; his failed courtships of Elizabeth de Blaquiere in 1803 and Anastasia Jessey Gascoigne in 1804; and the christening of his youngest son Frederick in 1806. Several letters mention Samuel Johnson and Hester Lynch Piozzi. Glasse corresponded regularly with members of the British and French royal families, especially George Augustus Frederick, Prince of Wales (later King George IV); Adolphus Frederick, Duke of Cambridge; Edward Augustus, Duke of Kent; Louis Philippe, duc d'Orléans (later King of the French); and Louis Joseph de Bourbon, prince de Condé. Other notable correspondents include: Charles Thomas Barker (an Oxford classmate of Glasse's); William Cobbett; Glasse's father Dr. Samuel Glasse; George Horne; Sir John McMahon; Irish poet Thomas Moore; Samuel Parr; and Julie de St. Laurent
