<Q A 17?? TC EV EMONTAGU>
<X ELIZABETH MONTAGU>
[}ELIZABETH MONTAGU TO ELIZABETH VESEY. NO DATE. HUNTINGTON LIBRARY}]
On tuesday & thursday I am yours, if your wishes never take a better aim than at my company you are not in danger of a disappointment. But pray Madam who told you I may [\be/] satisfied with one Peer? I think if you had been any thing friendly you might have askd my Lord Cardigan & Lady Betty Montagu, which w=d= save appearances, & no Lady minds saving any thing more in this age. I mean this for thursday. I am not much afraid of a golden chain where there is plenty of gold in a better form; & I believe most who have worn them, own [\that/] gold chains are very heavy tho not quite so galling as of baser & ruder metal.
I will bring M=rs= Carter on tuesday & if you please also on thursday take y=e= good preacher in Chaucer letting down the golden chain on high, she lifts her hearers upwards to y=e= sky. The links of her harmony will put my Lady Mayoress's chain out of countenance
[\ADDRESS\] To M=rs= Vesey
