The Mary Hamilton Papers

<p style='text-align: justify;'>Letter from Rev. Frederick Hamilton to John Dickenson. He writes that his age makes writing difficult and painful. He sends his condolences on the death of Dickenson's parent. Lady Aldborough is now Frederick Hamilton's only remaining child and is the subject of concern to him. She has been at Bath for a month and is constantly resorting to medical assistance, as her constitution is impaired. He also reports that a relation of his, the Duke of Queensberry [William Douglas, fourth Duke of Queensberry (1725-1810)], has left him a legacy of £10,000, which is not a surprise to him as the Duke had assured him that he would remember him.</p><p style='text-align: justify;'>Dated at Bath.</p>
