MARIA CATHERINE, LADY BLANDFORD. Mr. Stuart J. Beid in ' John and Sarah, Duke and Duchess of Marlborough ' (a book to which the present Duke supplies an Introduction), says, on p. 434, that William, Marquis of Blandford, who died at Oxford in August, 1731, had married a Dutch lady, " who, it may be stated in passing, did not long survive her husband." This is not so. Maria Catherine D' Jong, widow of William, Marquis of Blandford, married secondly Sir William Wyndham, who died in 1740. She died in 1779, aged 90. She had a house at Richmond, which she left to her sister, Lady Denbigh. See note 1 to ' The Journal of Lady Mary Coke,' i. 36.

A. FRANCIS STEUART. 79, Great King Street, Edinburgh.

BENTON NICHOLSON. This founder and editor of the scurrilous periodical The Town is quite a familiar figure in the social history of the early nineteenth century. His auto- biography is of some use for references to resorts and localities he frequented. It was fi.'st published by George Vickers under the title of ' The Lord Chief Baron Nicholson : an Autobiography,' and the distinguished Edinburgh bookseller from whom I pur- chased my copy clearly lacked discernment and humour when he catalogued it as a legal item. A later issue possibly the remaining sheets with a new title-page was " published for the Proprietors " in 1843 as "Autobiography of a Fast Man. By Benton Nicholson (Best Lord Chief Baron)."
