Portrait of Lady Blessington drawn by Daniel Maclise ( pen name "Alfred Croquis") and published by James Fraser, 215 Regent Street.  The picture is entitled “Author of ‘Conversations with Lord Byron’” and carries the facsimile signature of Lady Blessington.  Lady Blessington was the editor of The Keepsake, a fashionable Annual.  In 1844 Dickens contributed a poem “A word in Season” to it.  In 1852, Dickens contributed “To Be Read at Dusk” to the Annual (then edited by Lady Blessington’s niece, Marguerite Power).  Note Lady Blessington's portrait in the background, where she appears as a much younger woman.
