James Boswell - We Meet Again


My Romantic hero for pp is on Jean-Jacques Rousseau and have spent most of yesterday gleaning info and putting the pp together.  Earlier this year, I was researching about an alleged distant relation of mine named Mary Bryant and wrote about my findings in LJ.  My research included the biographies of both Mary Bryant and her benefactor James Boswell (pictured above). He was a well-placed Lord with his heart in the right place, but alas his other organ was often found in all the wrong places.

Cutting to the chase, I am researching Rousseau and it appears that R's wife Therese had an affair with James Boswell, who was staying at the house at that time and quite likely bore him a child, according to Infed.org

Well, well, well, Mr Boswell - we meet again.  You put yourself about a bit, don't you?
