<p style='text-align: justify;'>Letter from Rev. Frederick Hamilton to Mary Hamilton. He writes relating to the news that Lord Carlisle will soon succeed as Lord Lieutenant of Ireland and how this might be an opportunity for his preferment. Frederick Hamilton has written to 'Lady Stormont, reminding her that the opportunity was now come in which she [...] agreed an application in my favo[u]r might be made with greater probability of success' than before. He asks Lady Stormont to use her influence with Lord Stormont to help his case and hints to her that the memorial he had previously left with her 'cou[l]d be presented with his [Lord Stormont's] patronage'. He continues that he is not at this moment optimistic, as he has not detected much enthusiasm from those people who are in a position to help him.</p><p style='text-align: justify;'>Frederick Hamilton also writes on family news and of newspaper reports that his niece is still in Eastbourne, though he believes the reports are incorrect as the weather has been too rough for sea bathing. The same newspaper also mentions a 'catastrophe' close to Eastbourne caused by a strike of lightning.</p>
