<p style='text-align: justify;'>Letter from Sir William Hamilton to Mary Hamilton. He notes that he has not replied to the Duchess of Portland’s letter inviting him to Bulstrode as he had intended to have answered the letter in person at Bulstrode. He had been unable to do this as he was told that the King would be sending for him to spend a few days at Windsor this week. It is now impossible to visit the Duchess and Sir William asks his niece ‘to say everything you can imagine to the Duchess that is most respectful’. He will visit the Duchess as soon as she comes to London and show her the vase [the Portland Vase, now in the British Museum] which he understands she is anxious to see.</p><p style='text-align: justify;'>Dated at Nerot’s Hotel, King's Street [London].</p>
