From The Torrington Diaries (Abridged Selected), John Byng, 1790-06-07 at Belvoir Castle, Nottinghamshire, p158:

But in the whole House, there is no Furniture (Pictures excepted) that a Broker would think worth the carrying away; Nor one Chair, Table, Carpet or Curtain of use or comfort! In this Condition was the House found by the late duke; An old Bed, curiously worked by a Countess of Rutland, in a tapestry Room, with fine velvet Chairs, is the most antient Observation in the House.
