Hamilton, Frederick

The Mary Hamilton Papers

<p style='text-align: justify;'>Letter from Rev. Frederick Hamilton to Mary Hamilton relating to his estate in Dublin. The letter describes a small parish in his neighbourhood which he would be pleased to acquire, as it would justify his absences from his living in the north of Ireland, though he does not believe this would be possible.</p><p style='text-align: justify;'>The remainder of the letter is concerned with news of family and friends. He explains that his daughter Elizabeth, despite marrying a man of fortune, has an unhappy marriage (see HAM/1/4/1/2) and he hopes his second daughter, then aged ten, will be more fortunate. He reports that his son is with him in Ireland and is recovering from a bad reaction to his inoculation [probably for smallpox].</p>
