Contessa Isabella Teotochi Albrizzi, the Italian writer; Byron once acclaimed her "la Stael veneziana.". · To Elizabeth K. Ingram : 3 autograph letters signed, in French -- 14 Jul 1819 : (B'ANA 0320) : on friends and acquaintences they have in common, including R. B. Hoppner, Contessa Benzoni, Lord Byron and Teresa Guiccioli. The Contessa tells Ingram of Dr. Aglietti's hurried trip to Ravenna, at Lord Byron's request, where Teresa was ill (the incident is described in Iris Origo's The last attachment, p. 79-80, without all the details provided here). Also mentioned in the letter is J. W. Polidori's The vampire, then attributed by some to Lord Byron. Published in full with commentary as SC 641 in volume 7 of Shelley and his Circle. -- 6 May [1820] : (B'ANA 0468) : repeating some gossip heard on the subject of Lord Byron. -- 25 Aug 1823 : (B'ANA 0321) : perhaps in the hand of an amanuensis; including, "On assure que Lord Byron est allé en Grece ... mais c'est de l'argent, et pas des chansons qu'il faut á ces braves gens."
