This chapter describes Morris's family and lavish lifestyle. Robert and his wife Mary had seven children whom they doted on: Thomas, William, Esther (known as Hetty), Charles, Maria, and then Henry, their youngest. Mary was a proud woman who relished her position, serving as partner in Morris's undertakings, offering political advice, helping to cultivate his financial connections, directing their household, and overseeing their children's activities. The Morrises also earned a reputation for hospitality. Their private dinners, teas, card games, and music nurtured the same associations as those so publicly celebrated at the Dancing Assembly.
