Overview

Elizabeth Davis Bancroft was born in 1803. In 1846 she left New York and sailed in Liverpool, England. Her letters were written to her sons and her uncle describing her travels. She combines day to day life with historical facts in a delightful manner. "I took a drive through Richmond Park (where Henry the Eighth watched to see a signal on the Tower when Anne Boleyn's head fell, and galloped off to marry Jane Seymour) to Richmond Terrace, which is ravishingly beautiful even at this season . . .. The next day the gentleman all went to town, and Madam Van de Weyer and I passed the day TETE-A-TETE, very pleasantly, as her experience in diplomatic life is very useful to me . . .. Her manners are very pleasing and entirely unaffected."
