<p style='text-align: justify;'>Letter from Rev. Frederick Hamilton to John Dickenson. The letter relates to the funeral arrangements for Mrs Holman. Frederick Hamilton wishes it to be a very private affair but at the same time he does not want it to be 'unbecoming the beloved object'. He forbids that Mrs Holman's body be 'open[e]d in the House, there is no knowing what a dangerous disorder might be produced by the putrid effluvia', and he does not want to risk the health of others. Included on the sheet is a note from John Dickenson in which it appears to him that someone had previously written to Frederick Hamilton to have the body opened or he 'should not have proposed such a necessary Inspection' to him.</p><p style='text-align: justify;'>Dated at Bath.</p>
