The Mary Hamilton Papers

<p style='text-align: justify;'>Letter from Rev. Frederick Hamilton to Mary Hamilton. He writes of the death of Lady Ann Greville, who had been 'siez[e]d by an inflammation of the lungs'. She leaves a will befitting her 'spirited' character. The will leaves a sum of £500 and all her clothes to her maid, who has been with her almost ten years. Lord Warwick is to gain £500 per annum by Lady Ann's death, and 'all the demands upon him on her account are now cancell[e]d'. Lady Ann is to be buried at Warwick Castle. The letter also updates Mary Hamilton on their accounts, specifically a bond, and on his son, who has now returned from Geneva.</p><p style='text-align: justify;'>Dated at St James's Street [London].</p>
