unknown1761, Dec 15
an English letter writer. Horace Walpole mocked Lady Pomfret, speaking of her "paltry air of significant learning and absurdity", and claiming she was utterly devoid of humour. She considered ‘that Swift would have written better if he had never written ludicrously.’ Another satirical friend, Lady M. W. Montagu, found in Lady Pomfret's letters all the pleasure of an agreeable author. Lady Bute came into possession of the letters. Three volumes of Correspondence between Frances Countess of Hartford (afterwards Duchess of Somerset), and Henrietta Louisa, Countess of Pomfret, between … 1738 and 1741, were published at London in 1805.
