About the book >.>.> Mary looked her best during these romantic years. Her fuller figure had inspired the wicked humour of her older sister Philippa who wrote fondly on Mary’s eighteenth birthday to her “dear little plump partridge from your ever-loving pet”. Now five years later in her best silk dress modest necklace bracelet and ring all family presents she was as ready as she would ever be for the great adventure. There had been many romantic occasions which had been the subject of much gossip among the remaining five Dickinson sisters (Gertrude had died aged sixteen. in 1860. Lucy had married in 1866). When Mary later went to stay with Lucy cousin Muriel wrote asking. “Have you seen a certain interesting person lately? We have hardly seen a man since you left. I hope you will not be knocked up with nursing little Constance. I am rather disappointed it is not our Mr Ley! The description fitted so nicely”. She told Mary of great fun at Addington where they were organising theatricals after a most successful and cheerful wedding. Although Mary had missed out for once Muriel hoped that in the New Year a very charming “Mr Mary” would turn up before it was over.
