I would find it very useful indeed if the various reporters of
Elizabeth's fascinating nicknaming habits would provide specific
references to the texts that document them. The huge array of period
documents of the kind collected, say, in Winwood's Memorials are very
hard to search, and items of this kind are seldom indexed in secondary
sources. Specific references to letters from A to B, dated XYZ, found in
Collection Q, or Work W, or whatever, would be of immense use to many of
us-especially if the queen was in the habit of using this nickname, so
noteworthy on other grounds, for several major figures, as the different
postings suggest.

Thank you.

Frank Whigham
