Reading - 18C American Woman with a Book

1791 John Mackay or M'Kay (American artist, 1767-1807) Hannah Ackley Bush holding her place in a book. Not convinced about reading in this hat.

William Pepperell of Kittery Point, Massachusetts, in 1759 willed his library to the town on the condition that it be made a circulating library for all.
