The Grand Tour undertaken between 1701–1703 by Paul Rapin-Thoyras and his pupil Henry Bentinck, Viscount Woodstock, the son of the prominent Anglo-Dutch politician Hans Willem Bentinck is an interesting case for exploration because during the whole journey, both parties sent letters to the father. These letters were dedicated to the description of the daily life and customs of the cities visited, and personal relationship between the father, the son and the tutor. The aim of this article is to analyse various notions of privacy as can be seen in the letters themselves as well as in the particular selection of letters that have been copied at a later stage into a letter-book, now kept at the British Library.
