Content Description: 

This charming small portrait of Eliza "Didy" Ridgely (1828-1894) is likely the work of English miniaturist George L. Saunders. The Memorandum Book of Didy’s father, John Ridgely (1790-1867), records “Pd. G. L. Saunders for portrait…$122.00” in June 1841 and “Pd. G. L. Saunders bill…$606.00” the following February. Saunders also painted miniatures of both of Didy’s parents and her maternal great grandmother Eliza Eichelberger. When Didy was 13 years old, she kept a journal which illuminates a great deal about daily life at Hampton.
