Hi! I am looking for any info about Boswell's visit to Galloway House during his Harvest Jaunt in 1762. Specifically, if he mentions any of the younger daughters of the 6th earl. These would be the sisters of John Stewart that is mentioned in the London Journal. Thank you for any help!!

The only one of the 6th Earl's daughters that is mentioned in connection with his visit to Galloway House is Harriet Stewart, who I gather was the second-youngest daughter of the Earl. 

Boswell wrote of her: "Lady Harriet Stewart is well-looking, sensible and agreeable when her mother is not present, of whom she stands most prodigiously in awe, which makes her appear to disadvantage."

Best wishes,
