miss Saunders 5.2.1797 adv at H(olcrof)ts (& mrs Fenwick) / 26.2.1797 miss Saunders at H(olcrof)ts (& Fenwicks) / 28.3.1797 Saunders with W(olstonecraf)t, Tucker, Del Valle at Fenwick's / 19.4.1797 Saunders at theatre (& Fenwicks) / 23.8.1798 E Saunders at Fenwick's / 20.4.1800 miss Saunders at M(ary) Robinson's (& Fenwicks)
All 6 entries above were with Fenwicks and when the miss was dropped on 28.3.1797 the other guests named were all female without miss or mrs. I like to think, maybe fancifully, this may have been (Esther?) Saunders (Highfill, Burnim & Langhans) singer & acrobat at Drury Lane & Royal Circus. The name doesn't appear in the indexes to correspondence of Eliza Fenwick or Mary Hays
