<p style='text-align: justify;'>Letter from Rev. Frederick Hamilton to Mary Hamilton. The greater part of the letter relates to the character of Robert Hamilton, whom his father describes as having a 'weak understanding' but 'great cunning', and as being unworried when reproached for not acting as a 'Gentleman in all respects'. He goes on to describe him as a 'confirm'd Impostor'. He also writes of his concerns about his son's future plans. The letter then turns to Frederick Hamilton's discomfort at the idea of participating in a gathering at Taxal with his brother, Sir William Hamilton, and Sir William's mistress and future wife, Emma Lyon, and the excuse to be given for his non-attendance.</p>
