The Mary Hamilton Papers

<p style='text-align: justify;'>Letter from Mrs Jane Holman née Hamilton to Mary Hamilton. The letter relates to Jane's returning to England from Dublin on account of business, specifically the finding of a tenant. Her husband is unable to do so, as he has renewed his engagement at a theatre in Dublin for the Winter season and is unsure as to when he can get back to England. He is in Bristol at the moment and is expected home on the 22nd before he travels again to Dublin.</p><p style='text-align: justify;'>The letter continues on more general news. Jane reports that she is to lose Mrs Mann, a friend of eleven years, to marriage and that it is a good match, so she should rejoice for her, but the loss 'damps the satisfaction [she] should otherwise feel'.</p><p style='text-align: justify;'>Dated at The Hill Top, near Weobley, Herefordshire.</p>
