Algarotti had been at Turin since the end of January. Lady Mary got there on 16 March, having left her baggage at Genoa and traversed ‘very bad roads’. For two months Turin held them both; then they parted, to remain out of touch for probably fifteen years. That is all that is certain. The recent context of Lady Mary's waiting and of Algarotti's pursuing other goals, both sexual and careerist, might lead one to expect that he rejected her expeditiously even if not unkindly.
