The Mary Hamilton Papers

<p style='text-align: justify;'>Letter from Louisa Cheveley to Mary Hamilton, relating to news of friends and the Royal Family. Cheveley writes that Miss Goldsworthy sends her thanks for her Hamilton's note but is unable to write at present as she is suffering from 'one of her old attacks on her chest'. A 'second blister was put on her last night which quite disables her from writing' but asks that Cheveley inform her that the Duchess of Portland is to visit the Queen's Lodge today.</p><p style='text-align: justify;'>Cheveley is delighted to hear that Hamilton is well and in the society of 'friends of Kindred Merit with your own'. She reports that Princess Sophia is taking her music lesson and looks a 'little angel' as she concentrates. Cheveley asked the Princess if she remembers Hamilton and she blushed and replied that she did and asked Cheveley to give her love to 'Hammy'. Princess Amelia is described as the 'sweetest creature that ever was'.</p><p style='text-align: justify;'>Cheveley also reports that an air balloon is to be let off in the Garden that morning, 'you see we are creeping in the fashions'. Cheveley wishes she had greater intelligence to communicate to Hamilton but notes that Hamilton is in the centre of intelligence rather than her.</p><p style='text-align: justify;'>Dated at the Lower Lodge, [Windsor].</p>
