The Mary Hamilton Papers : Letter from Louisa Cheveley to Mary Hamilton

Cheveley (née Nevin), Louisa Laetitia

The Mary Hamilton Papers

<p style='text-align: justify;'>Letter from Louisa Cheveley to Mary Hamilton, relating to the grief of the King and Queen on the death of Prince Octavius. Cheveley notes that the Prince was well and in good spirits two days previous to his death. It seems to her like a 'dream'. She feels it right to tell Hamilton that the Prince's death had nothing to do with smallpox and he 'was in the finest state imaginable and continued to the hour of his Death'. Cheveley ends her letter with the hope that Hamilton never experiences what she has suffered and indeed continues to suffer.</p><p style='text-align: justify;'>Dated at Kew.</p>
