The Mary Hamilton Papers

<p style='text-align: justify;'>Letter from Rev. Frederick Hamilton to John Dickenson. Mrs Mann [in whose house Mrs Holman was residing at the time of her death] visited Frederick Hamilton regarding papers relating to Mrs Holman and to impart to him Mrs Holman's last words. She reports that immediately after her death Mr Holman asked for her keys and in her presence took £100 from her drawer which belonged to Frederick Hamilton. Frederick deems his conduct 'certainly improper'. He also received an 'impertinent' letter from Holman stating that he was disappointed with their last meeting, since he had expected Frederick to make him a gift 'to ameliorate his circumstances'. Hamilton presented a gift of £200 to Mrs Mann as a testimony of his regard for her attachment to his daughter.</p><p style='text-align: justify;'>Dated at Bath.</p>
