 Feb. 21 1812:
 Sam[ue]l Drummond from 14 [?] Greek Street, Soho, to Sir Harford Jones, Bart., at the Whitten.
 The writer's account for painting portraits of H.J. and Lady Jones, for framing various other pictures, etc.
 ---
 Seems possibly the portrait of Harford Jones is mentioned in “Dictionary of British Portraiture: Kilmurray, E. Later Georgians ... 1980.)
 ---
 The pose, the props and the manner of painting are all typical of him, and the age of the sitter suggests it was done in the late 1740s. Jane, who is wearing a golden-yellow dress, must have sat a year or so later, but for her it seems Ramsay was chosen instead. From the time he set up in London in 1738 he offered increasing competition to Hudson, and in 1751 Vertue wrote of his portraits of women that they were "delicate and genteel, easy, free likenesses], their habits and dresses well disposed and airy, his flesh tender, his silks and satins, & shining, beautiful and clean, with great variety." The differences between the two are all the more striking because the portraits are conceived as a pair.
 The sweeter style of much late-18th-century female portrait painting is typified in that of Lady Jones Brydges (at that time still Mrs. Jones) with her daughter, Laura, by HP Danloux (1753-1809) over the chimneypiece in the terrace-room (Fig. 10). The picture is dated 1801, and Mrs. Jones mentions sitting to the artist in one of her letters to her husband that year. Round the picture has been placed some of the marvellous Gibbenss carving from the west end of the drawing-room at Holme Lacy, but a comparison of photographs suggests the general proportions have been slightly altered. ...
