Thomas Brand: Letters to his Sister from the Continent
Scope and Contents
A series of letters written by Brand while travelling on the Continent, some of which are incomplete. 38 of the letters are to Brand's sister Susan, addressed until October 1788 as Miss Brand of Newmarket, thereafter, from Nov. 1789, as Miss Carr of Hadstock, near Lincoln. There is one letter from Brand to the Rev. Joseph Hall, Rector of Bartlow, who was Brand's brother-in-law, and another from G. Pretyman to Miss Brand, apparently about the possibilities of preferment for Thomas. Most of the letters are travelogues, describing the scenery, art galleries, concerts, and operas of the various cities visited.
