Script Details

I was born on Long Island in 1725, but came to live in Bordentown, New Jersey at the age of four. My father, John Lovell, was a devout Quaker. By age twenty-one, I had become passionate about art, especially sculpting, and moved to Philadelphia, the center of the American art world. I married fellow Quaker Joseph Wright and we moved back to Bordentown. Joseph died unexpectedly in 1769. My older sister Rachel, also a widow, suggested we start a business making wax sculptures. Although we soon had two thriving waxwork salons in Philadelphia and New York City, I moved to London where Benjamin Franklin introduced me to important people who wanted to be sculpted. While they posed, I entertained each one with my views on current events. I shared my views openly and honestly with people of all stations in life, even the King. I was a strong supporter of William Pitt who tried to reconcile the differences between the British government and the American colonies. Throughout the war that came, I used my wax statues to smuggle out letters to the Continental Congress, passing on whatever military and political news came my way in my many business and social conversations. I also tried to help American prisoners of war in England and supported efforts to compensate Loyalists for their losses. I died in London in 1786 and my burial site is unknown. I had hoped to purchase a burial plot in New Jersey, but my death came before this was accomplished.
