He asks Hamilton to send Miss Dickenson and Eliza some hats: 'they dont wish to have 'em so very hoity toity – they complain of hav[in]g none at present that are fit to be seen – I think it would be very proper if you was to lay in a tolerable stock of eight guinea Caps and every other Article of female Apparel in the same proportion'.</p><p style='text-align: justify;'>Original reference No. 26.</p>
