An enjoyable, funny novel dealing with the life of twin girls, born to a silly London beauty who eloped with a Scotsman. He is disinherited, and poverty in Scotland is too much for the beauty to endure, so she leaves with one twin, Adelaide Julia, and leaves the other, Mary, to be raised in Scotland by her aunt and three great-aunts: Miss Jacky, Miss Grizzy, and Miss Nicky.Of course, when Mary is ready for marriage, she reunites with her sister and complications occur, contrasting a fashionable London education with a good, moral Scottish education.
rted with her. Do I know the person who is the original? The dress was vastly like Mrs. Damer,  and the manners like Lady Frederick.  Tell me if you did not mean a touch at her. I love poor Sir Sampson vastly, though it is impossible, in the presence of his lady, to have eyes or ears for anyone else. Now you must not think of altering her, and it must all go forth in the world; neither must the misses upon any account be changed. I have a way now of at least offering it to publication by which you never can be discovered. I will tell the person that I wrote it (indeed, quothà, cries Miss Ferrier, and no great favour; see how she loves to plume herself with borrowed fame!). Well, however, my way is quite sure, and the person would never think of speaking of it again, so never let the idea of detection come across your brain while you are writing to damp your ardour.
 Daughter of General Seymour Conway, and a distinguished sculptor. She was niece of the fifth Duke of Argyll.
