The Mary Hamilton Papers

<p style='text-align: justify;'>Letter from Elizabeth Vesey to Mrs Jackson and Miss Clarke [friends of Hamilton who lived with her for a time in Clarges Street]. The letter relates to general news. Vesey wishes to awaken in both Jackson's and Clarke's memory 'those to whom you gave so much pleasure at the beloved Cottage', and notes that 'that malicious Thief Time is always pilfering something & if I let you alone any longer the idea of the Veseys wou[l]d soon fade'. Vesey looks forward to hearing from them and asks them to write something about their 'charming Miranda'. She notes that the night before there was a storm with strong winds and that a man's body was 'seen harried along by the Torrent under our Window'.</p><p style='text-align: justify;'>Original reference No. 10.</p>
