The Mary Hamilton Papers

<p style='text-align: justify;'>Letter from Elizabeth Vesey to Mary Hamilton, relating to letters written by Mrs Carter [Elizabeth Carter (1717-1806), poet, translator, and writer]. Vesey notes that her husband's illness has 'confused' her memory and that she has not been able to 'find much less to select Mrs Carters [sic] Letters'. Some 'fine ones' that she had mentioned to Hamilton were locked away in a strong-box and left in Ireland. Vesey trusts to Hamilton's friendship to Carter not to show the letters if she thinks they will not 'please'.</p><p style='text-align: justify;'>Original reference No. 3.</p>
