Susan Burney Letters Project

I recently came across the Susan Burney Letters Project website.This project by Nottingham University sets out to make the 330 letters and letter-journals of Susan Burney, Fanny Burney’s younger sister, widely available for the first time. According to the project’s website, Susan’s letters and letter-journals ‘provide a uniquely informed account of English musical culture, a chronicle of some of the period’s major political events and valuable insights into the social status and occupations of an educated woman.’

    Wow, this is an amazing project! I didn’t know Susan’s letters still existed. Together with Fanny’s journals I expect you get a good overview of what the family and their social circle was like. 🙂
