<p style='text-align: justify;'>Letter from John Dickenson to his wife Mary née Hamilton. The letter relates to the hiring of a servant. A young woman of twenty-three, with an 'engaging Countenance', dressed Miss G.'s hair very well, and Dickenson quizzed her over willingness to live in the country. 'I am of Opinion She is exactly what you want'.</p><p style='text-align: justify;'>The letter is undated, but relates to the hiring of a servant and may be dated on the same day as HAM/1/2/10. It was originally placed in the archive next to HAM/1/2/11 and both were numbered 13. However, the two [?unrelated] servant hirings may have led to a mistaken association: the content fits better with HAM/1/2/8a, HAM/1/2/8b, HAM/1/2/8c and a date of February-March 1786.</p>
