Williams-Nalson love letter

Very few Renaissance love letters have survived to the present day. The Folger acquired such a letter in 2013, in which Philip Williams (d. 1719) gushes to his future wife, Elizabeth Nalson, "the sight of your letter Surpriz’d me and raised those transports in me that could receive no accession from anything but the sight of your own most adored person." He signs himself, "Your most gratefull Eternall Votarie & humblest Servant."

Date: circa 1680
