DANCE, George, the younger (1741-1825). Architect.
Good Autograph Letter Signed to his daughter Isabella, 2 pages 4to with part of address-leaf, Upper Gower Street, 9 September 1817. A family letter, sending messages for his brother Charles, deriding his daughter sarah's visit to Brighton Pavilion, and describing a visit from his elder brother Sir Nathaniel Dance(-Holland).
'... My servant has carried a supply of money to your servants. I am very glad the Fish was good & kindly received, I wish that I cou'd send any thing from hence that was likely to be agreable to the sociable party of Drakes Place. As to any thought of visiting Switzerland I dare not suffer it to enter my mind - too many objections rise up in opposition but there is not perhaps any formidable impediment you and Charles and Greeny may not overcome. I rejoice that your Aunt has overcome her enemy the Rheumatism if your sister Sarah was entertained at the Pavillian I fear it must have been at the mass of absurdity. I am going out with Sir Nathaniel who is staying a few days with me to my great comfort so you see I am not without my party 'tho we only muster a Duo. ...' etc.
