<p style='text-align: justify;'>Letter from John Hope to Mary Hamilton. The letter relates to Hamilton's refusal of marriage to Hope. He writes that he is sorry that his 'vanity should have imputed to the tenderness of Love, what only proceeded from a most disinterested friendship'. Given Hamilton's 'compassion' for Hope's misfortunes "the mistake was natural, & I could not but ask a Heart that I thought was bias[e]d in my favour". Hope continues that Hamilton's refusal will not remove from his mind her kindness to him or lessen his attachment to her.</p><p style='text-align: justify;'>Hamilton has crossed Hope's signature from the letter.</p>
