The Mary Hamilton Papers

<p style='text-align: justify;'>Letter from Robert Fulke Greville to John Dickenson, relating to the funeral of Mrs Holman. He notes that Mr Hamilton's [Frederick Hamilton (<a target='_blank' class='externalLink uom-purple' href=''>HAM/1/4/1</a>), Mrs Holman's father] 'desire of its being private, has prevented my offering my Carriage to attend, which I should have be[en] glad to have done'.</p><p style='text-align: justify;'>Greville again mentions that he and his wife had not been aware of Holman's illness and were surprised that no-one had informed them that she had been ill for over thirty days. If they had been aware, they might then have been able to recollect that they ‘could not have been wanting to Ourselves, nor to Mr. Hamilton, at this period of extreme distress’.</p>
