The Mary Hamilton Papers

<p style='text-align: justify;'>Letter from John Hope to Mary Hamilton, concerning his distress. He apologises to Hamilton for not waiting on her to tea but that his own and his friends sorrows are too much for him in one day. He has walked for two hours in an attempt to ‘drive away his cares’ but has returned more burdened than he was before he left her house. Hope writes that if he does not visit her as often it is not through ingratitude to the concern that Hamilton and her mother have taken in his distress but to his own resolve not to be troublesome to his friends.</p>
