Lady Cowley was born The Hon. Olivia Cecilia FitzGerald (d. 1885) daughter of Lord Henry FitzGerald (fourth son of the 1st Duke of Leinster) and the 20th Baroness de Ros, and in 1833 she married Henry Wellesley by whom she had three sons and two daughters.

Henry Richard Charles Wellesley, 1st Earl Cowley KG GCB PC (17 June 1804-15 July 1884), was a British diplomat. He was the eldest son of the 1st Baron Cowley (1773-1847), and the former Lady Charlotte Cadogan, daughter of the 1st Earl Cadogan, and was consequently a nephew of the 1st Duke of Wellington. Wellesley followed a career as a diplomat.

July 29th was on a Saturday in 1843 and 1848. I have assumed the latter date to be that of the letter.
