Mary Berry, English author. She and her sister Agnes befriended an elderly Horace Walpole in 1788, who took a strong interest in the girls, providing them a home at his Little Strawberry Hill. She edited the posthumous collection of The Works of Horatio Walpole and wrote several books, including A comparative view of the social life of England and France from the Restoration of Charles the Second to the French Revolution (1828). Chiefly remembered for her association with Walpole, recent scholars have shown interest in her letters and journals for the insight they give on women's history. To her cousin George : 1 autograph letter signed : 6 Apr 1844 : (MISC 0959) : regarding their cousin Synnot and an appointment to the military.
