<p style='text-align: justify;'>Letter from Rev. Frederick Hamilton to Mary Hamilton. The letter relates to the conduct of Robert Hamilton and his father's hopes for his future improvement. He expresses his gratitude to Mary and her husband for hosting his son Robert at Taxal; Robert has commented in his letters on the 'attention & civilities' he is receiving from them. However, Frederick warns: 'In a few months more he will enter upon a new state & be solely responsible for his own conduct & engagements; if he adopts an honest manly part I shall be really happy & there will be an union in our interests, but shou'd he pursue a contrary line, all confidence between us will be at an end, & his plea of being my Son will have no weight when he has no other recommendation to enforce it'.</p><p style='text-align: justify;'>Frederick also reports that he has leased a house in Portman Square and has expended considerable sums in repairing and furnishing it. However, because a debtor has delayed the repayment of a bond due to him, he has has been obliged to defer payment of some of tradesmen's bills.</p>
