Fisher, John

The Mary Hamilton Papers

<p style='text-align: justify;'>Letter from John Fisher to Mary Hamilton. He regrets the lack of opportunities to pay his respects to her. It is 'an odd circumstance that tho[ugh] we are engaged in the service of the same Family, & within a distance less than twenty miles, we should be so much strangers to each other, as if we were in two different Countries'. Fisher thanks Hamilton for her letter and writes that he is pleased also to receive a letter from Lady Finch as no-one had been able to learn anything about her or Lord Winchilsea for some time. [Lady Finch was in Caldas, Portugal with her son: see HAM/1/12/29.]</p><p style='text-align: justify;'>Fisher returns a letter to Hamilton that she had sent him to comment upon and advises that it is such a delicate a subject that he is unsure as to be able to recommend a person 'for so important a Charge'. He is to visit Chelsea shortly but notes that he will not mention the subject unless it is first mentioned'.</p><p style='text-align: justify;'>The letter continues on Fisher's concerns over Hamilton's health.</p><p style='text-align: justify;'>Dated at Kew.</p>
