Montagu, Mrs (Elizabeth), 1720-1800,. Autograph letter signed from Elizabeth Robinson Montagu, Hill Street, to Mrs. Garrick [manuscript], [1776 June 7] Friday morning.

Autograph letter signed from Elizabeth Robinson Montagu, Hill Street, to Mrs. Garrick [manuscript], [1776 June 7] Friday morning.

Could she use her box on Saturday to see Mr. Garrick in King Lear? She never wished any thing so much as to see Mr. Garrick once more in this piece. Bringing the Marquis de Castiglioni the other night was not Mrs. Montagu's fault. Miss Gregory would not think to intrude. [Garrick's last performance as Lear took place on Saturday June 8, 1776]
