The Mary Hamilton Papers

<p style='text-align: justify;'>Note from John Hope to Mary Hamilton, relating to books. Hope writes that the weather prevents ‘Ladies going out, [and hence there is] no better time for presenting a New Book!’ When Hamilton has read the book he sends her she ‘will be convinced, tho[ugh] I may be an Author, that I have no pretension to be call[e]d a Poet’. Although he is ashamed of his rhymes, the sentiments ‘will do no dishonour to my heart’. Hope continues in the note to recommend specific sections for her to read.</p>
