Murray, Anne, Lady

The Mary Hamilton Papers

<p style='text-align: justify;'>Letter from Anne Murray to Mary Hamilton, concerning news of family and acquaintances. Murray is happy to hear that Mr Dickenson has found a 'Remedy for his troublesome complaint' and hopes that the soap pills will prevent its return. The letter goes on to describe the various illnesses of other relations, including her sister and Lord Mansfield. The letter makes reference to a 'Publick Calamity', and it being 'too dreadful a Subject to dwell upon'. [She writes this in reply to a letter Hamilton had sent her, not included in the archive. It may well relate to the King's ill-health in late October 1788 and the ensuing Regency Crisis.] Murray notes that the politics are too intricate for her discernment but hopes, as does Hamilton, that it will be resolved for the good of all. The letter concludes with Murray's thanks to Hamilton for sending her a manuscript.</p>
