The Mary Hamilton Papers

<p style='text-align: justify;'>Letter from Frances Evelyn Boscawen to Mary Hamilton. She replies to an invitation made by Mary Hamilton to visit but notes that she is unable to leave her house at the present time, as she needs to be by the fire-side because of her rheumatism. Her doctor has treated the rheumatism successfully but she is 'confin[e]d' at home for the time being. She invites Mary Hamilton and Mr Dickenson to instead visit her, and talks of Mrs Vesey [Elizabeth Vesey (c.1715-1791), literary hostess] and notes that, if she could leave her home, she would be 'among the first to wait on Her'.</p>
