<p style='text-align: justify;'>Journal-letter from John Dickenson to his wife Mary née Hamilton covering the period 1-4 May 1794. He writes in detail of his time in Bath, his social life there, and the people he socialised with, including the Rundells (see <a target='_blank' class='externalLink uom-purple' href='https://archiveshub.jisc.ac.uk/manchesteruniversity/data/gb133-ham/ham/1/8/6'>HAM/1/8/6</a>) and Mrs Boscawen (see <a target='_blank' class='externalLink uom-purple' href='https://archiveshub.jisc.ac.uk/manchesteruniversity/data/gb133-ham/ham/1/6/1'>HAM/1/6/1</a>). At the house of Mrs Pigotts was a portrait painted by Sir Joshua Reynolds, the finest he ever saw, and he suggests Hamilton view it herself; they told him that Reynolds was so pleased with the portrait and the credit it would later do him that he said he ought to pay them for it rather than they him.</p><p style='text-align: justify;'>Original reference No. 19.</p>
