The Mary Hamilton Papers : Letter from Juliane Elisabeth Schwellenberg to Mary Hamilton

Schwellenberg, Juliane Elisabeth

The Mary Hamilton Papers

<p style='text-align: justify;'>Letter from Juliane Elisabeth Schwellenberg, Keeper of the Robes to Queen Charlotte (c.1728-1797)] in which she refuses a present from Hamilton in case it gives 'a wrong impression'. She writes that she never accepts a 'Present of Value' and that she requires no 'Memento' to remember Hamilton, as her merit is too deeply impressed to be erased. She ends the letter by asking for the pleasure of Hamilton's company, and 'should [...] my dear Miss Hambleton [sic] think me deserving a little drawing of your own'. On this second request, cf. HAM/1/7/13/5(1) and HAM/1/7/13/5(2), which are of the same date as the present letter.</p><p style='text-align: justify;'>Original reference No. 17.</p>
