Mary Hamilton Papers

<p style='text-align: justify;'>Letter from Rev. Frederick Hamilton to John Dickenson. He writes that he has just received Dickenson's letter of the 7th in which he proposes that an autopsy is carried out on Mrs Holman for 'the benefit of mankind'. He forbids this as he fears that such an action may infect others, specifically Mrs Mann and the other residents of the house where she was being looked after before she died. Frederick had made it clear in a past letter (HAM/1/4/2/25) that he was against such a procedure.</p><p style='text-align: justify;'>Dated at Bath.</p>
