Price (unmarried) is listed as governess of the property in 1851, hence our tentative dating.

[A Musical Assembly]
[A Musical Assembly] Drawn by J. Farrer from the Original Picture by Hogarth.
Etched by G.Cruikshank [after Marcellus Laroon the Younger].
[n.d., 1819.]
Etching. Sheet 175 x 235mm (7 x 9¼"). Trimmed within plate, laid on album paper with letterpress title and description underneath.
The keyplate of a painting once believed to be by William Hogarth but is now attributed to Marcellus Laroon the Younger. It shows a fashionable salon during a 'musical assembly', with a key of 24 personages of whom only 12 are identified, with the central figure, '15', named as Lord Castlemain and '16' as Frederick, Prince of Wales (father of George III), with other members of the Royal Family. The letterpress describes how Hogarth painted the scene for Castlemain's house at Wanstead but was still in the painter's possession when he died. The painting, now in the Tate (T13316), is now attributed to Laroon (1679-1772) and the main figure identified as Charles Mordaunt (1658-1735), 3rd Earl of Peterborough, at a soirée at his house in Fulham. The only other identification the Tate suggests is the woman next to Mordaunt (14 here), ''possibly Anastasia Robinson, a distinguished singer then at the outset of her operatic career'', whom Mordaunt secretly married in 1722.

Having been a quarter-master in the Parliamentarian army, Nayler became a Quaker in 1651, joining the Valiant Sixty, a group of early Quaker preachers and missionaries. Nayler [1618-60] was one of the more radical members, and in 1656 he and his friends staged a demonstration entering Bristol on a donkey, re-enacting Christ's entering Jerusalem. Nayler was arrested and convicted of blasphemy; branded on the forehead with the letter B and his tongue bored through, he went to prison for two years. On his release he repented of his actions, but continued his Quaker life until he died a day after being mugged. Despite the blasphemy he remained an influential figure to the Quaker movement.

On Stone by J. Brandard, from the original Drawing by Captain Ross [c.1835]
[London: A. W. Webster, 156 Regent Street, 1835.]
Lithograph, with hand colour. Sheet 235 x 185mm (9¼ x 7¼")
A woman from the Boothia Peninsula, Nunavut, Canada, described by John Ross in his 'Narrative of a Second Voyage in Search of a North-west Passage' (1835), from which this print originates. In his narrative, Ross writes that Nimna Himna 'was a constant visitor to the ship, and generally carried off something which she had picked up. On one occasion, when coming up the ladder, she was tumbled off by the surgeon, and falling on her back, pretended to faint; from which, although all the doctor could do could not recover her, she was restored by the offer of an empty tin case, which had contained preserved meat: a stratagem which she subsequently tried more than once without success. She was about sixty years of age, five feet two inches high, extremely ill-looking, and decidedly the most disgusting of the whole tribe'. Ross was forced by ice to stop at the Boothia peninsula (which he named after his patron Sir Felix Booth) for four years while searching for the north-west passage.
