Grand documentOriginal passage from the "Grand document".

'As for your courtier Mrs. Howard, and her Mistress [the Queen], I have nothing to say, but that they have neither memory nor manners; else I should have some mark of the former from the latter, which I was promised above two years ago; but, since I made them a present, it would be mean to remind them.'

(Williams 1963, vol. 3, pp. 312-5; Burnett 2020b, p. 1628)
