In a letter to Maria Edgeworth written in early 1825 Scott wrote: “I do most certainly intend to be at Dublin in the summer or autumn … one of my earliest objects will be to visit my kind friends at Edgeworthstown.” Maria accompanied him on his trip to Killarney where they called on the historian Henry Hallam.
