The Mary Hamilton Papers

<p style='text-align: justify;'>Letter from Rev. Frederick Hamilton to John Dickenson. He reports on family and financial matters. His son left for his Regiment in Nottingham two weeks ago. The cost of his equipment and his commission was £1500, to which an allowance of £200 per annum is to be added. He reports that he has lately changed his living in the North of Ireland to a moderate one [Stanton] in Suffolk and his income will diminish by £300 per annum by this change. He hopes to reside at the living for four or five months each summer and consider it as a country retreat. Lady Stormont has given birth to a daughter, who he is godfather to. He notes that 'all little unfriendly ideas that L[or]d S[tormon]t might have given foundation for some years ago, are now perfectly obliterated'. He notes that Lady Frances Harpur (see <a target='_blank' class='externalLink uom-purple' href=''>HAM/1/16</a>) is beginning to see her friends a little and reports that the Duke and Duchess of Atholl are in Town and have a house in Hanover Square that had formerly been the residence of the imperial minister.</p><p style='text-align: justify;'>Dated at Oxford Street [London].</p>
