She hopes to hear some good news from their friends at Bulstrode, the Duchess of Portland and Mrs Delany [Mary Delany (née Granville) (1700-1788), English Bluestocking, artist, and letter-writer], and notes that Lord Mansfield [William Murray, 1st Earl of Mansfield (1704/5-1793), great uncle of Elizabeth Murray] and her father, Lord Stormont, are to visit there shortly, and that Lord Mansfield is now at Kenwood and is in good health. Murray concludes her letter by informing Hamilton of the safe arrival of the plants at Kenwood.</p>
