The Mary Hamilton Papers

<p style='text-align: justify;'>Letter from Rev. Frederick Hamilton to Mary Hamilton. He writes that he is returning some papers to his niece and refers back to the birth of Lord and Lady Stormont's second son. He writes that his complaint at not being informed of the birth may have been amiss (see HAM/1/4/1/14) and that the matter should end there.</p><p style='text-align: justify;'>He is sorry to hear of the poor state of health of Lord Cathcart, which will not allow him to continue in America until the end of the war, which Frederick Hamilton believes will be shortly.</p><p style='text-align: justify;'>Frederick Hamilton advises that sea-bathing and horse-riding will be more beneficial to his niece than a medical prescription. He continues on family matters: his second daughter, Jane, will be twelve in October; his eldest daughter, Mrs Stratford, is described as truly 'unfortunate [with regard to her husband], a fine understanding & great sensibility – to no understanding & the greatest brutality'.</p>
