I also mention Beattie's criticism of Hume in my Reflecting Subjects. Note too that Beattie was friends with Elizabeth Montagu who held meetings of the Bluestockings at her home. I believe it was through Montagu that Beattie had his portrait painted by Reynolds; and there's an interesting contrast between Reynolds and Ramsay as portrait painters.

Yes, your footnote calling attention to the literature on the Reynolds portrait is very much worth developing. The connection with Montagu has not impressed itself before on me. Thank you!
