Hamilton, Frederick

The Mary Hamilton Papers

<p style='text-align: justify;'>Letter from Rev. Frederick Hamilton to Mary Hamilton. He informs his niece of his safe arrival in Dublin and thanks her for her attentions to him during his visit to London, which was so 'very different from what I experienced from every other quarter'. He writes that the 'object' of his visit [presumably preferment in the Church] has not been answered as he would have wished. The letter also notes that Ireland seems satisfied with what has been done for it but that there are people in England working surreptitiously to create difficulties. 'This Country is disposed to be perfectly satisfied with what has been done for them, but there are clandestine attempts by Persons in England to create new difficulties in which it is generally supposed they will be disappointed'.</p>
