The Mary Hamilton Papers

<p style='text-align: justify;'>Letter from Rev. Frederick Hamilton to Mary Hamilton. He makes reference to fears of a possible invasion [from France], and notes that they had more to fear from an 'invasion from our internal enemies than from our invaders'. He returns to the issue of the neglected promise of preferments (see HAM/1/4/1/7) and suggests that if he had been longer in Queen Charlotte's observation, she might have become acquainted with his hopes and then he would not have been so disregarded.</p><p style='text-align: justify;'>The letter continues on family news. Of his children he reports that Mrs Stratford [Frederick Hamilton's daughter, Elizabeth (see HAM/1/4/1/2)] is married to a 'savage'. His second daughter is described as 'charming' and has 'excellent abilities', whilst his son, Robert, is very handsome.</p>
