The Mary Hamilton Papers

<p style='text-align: justify;'>Letter from Mrs Jane Holman née Hamilton to Mary Hamilton, relating to Jane's health and marriage. Joseph Holman is staying in Dublin, having renewed his engagement at the theatre, and does not wish his wife to come to the city to be with him. The reasons he gives seem so incredible to Holman that she believes the true reason to be that he has another attachment there. She has suspected this for some time. Reasons of economy were given by Joseph for her not travelling to the city. Frederick Hamilton offered to contribute to their income to enable them to live together and was turned down by her husband, which confirms her suspicions. She is now looking for a 'moderate establishment' in London, as the air in Bath does not agree with her. The letter continues on news of friends and family.</p><p style='text-align: justify;'>Dated at London.</p>
