The Mary Hamilton Papers

<p style='text-align: justify;'>Letter from Elizabeth Palombi to her sister, Sarah Dickenson. Palombi begins by stating that she is limited to a few lines as she is forwarding the letter to England via a friend. In her last letter to her sister dated in August (not included in the archive), she noted that she had been in a poor state of health and hopes that a Mr Timmins has visited her family to provide 'an acco[un]t of y[ou]r Elizabeth & her children'. She writes that she went to the country in order to help her recovery, where she 'undertook a course of medicines, which purified my blood in some degree, & served to keep me alive for the winter'. The letter continues to note Palombi's pleasure at receiving letters from her friends and family.</p>
