Portée et contenu
This sub-series brings together a journal of 1837-1839 and two albums of 1837-1839 and 1847-1852 compiled by Lady Mary Louisa Lambton Bruce, Countess of Elgin and Kincardine, plus a number of drawings, watercolors and lithographs she created; a bundle of letters she received from her husband, 1847-1854; and a number of mementos linked principally to her second sojourn in Canada. The journal and album of 1837-1839 complement one another, enhancing the opportunities to perceive the world through Lady Mary Louisa's eyes. The range of works over the decades illustrates not only the development of her artistic skills and the range of her interests in the world around her, but also how she used her art in the support of charitable causes and to inform family in England and Scotland about the new world she inhabited as wife of the Governor of the Province of Canada.
