<p style='text-align: justify;'>Letter from John Hope to Mary Hamilton. He sends a copy of his political letters and also a copy of a comedy [evidently Oliver Goldsmith's <i>She Stoops to Conquer</i>] which he 'laugh[e]d at till my Sides were sore'. He continues on the effect that publication of his letters might have on his relations. He had foreseen his embarrassment [over debt], and he hoped that publication might shame them into helping prevent his bankruptcy, though without causing them hurt. The letter continues on Hope's reasons for publishing the work.</p>
