Hamilton (née Daniel), Rachel

The Mary Hamilton Papers

<p style='text-align: justify;'>Letter from R. Hamilton [Rachel Hamilton, wife of Rev. Frederick Hamilton] to Mary Hamilton. The letter is concerned with general family news. After spending four months at Stanton and five in Bath, they have come up to Town 'to see our friends and partake a little of the various Amusements which this Season of the year affords in London'. She says that 'continual moving and change of situation [...] is we think neither profitable nor amusing', and Mr Hamilton intends to have just one house in future, either in Bath or London, and to let the parsonage at Stanton.</p><p style='text-align: justify;'>She discusses other family matters, including the expected arrival of Sir William Hamilton on a visit from his post in Naples on 20 May. Her son Robert has grown and improved, and is happy in his military situation; he 'is most lucky in being already Eldest Cornet'. </p>
