Farhill, John

The Mary Hamilton Papers

<p style='text-align: justify;'>Letter from John Farhill to Mary Hamilton, relating to some confusion over a meeting. He had informed a Mrs Tufnell about Hamilton's intentions and had called three times at Dover Street the previous day on 'this subject' and also called twice at Hamilton's apartment, unsuccessfully. He had meant to try again but was informed at dinner that the princesses were to attend the Opera. He writes that 'as you had taken no notice of an Engagement which I considered merely conditional, I concluded [...] that y[ou]r attendance on them preceded it'. He writes that he is 'hurt' and at present 'unable to apologize in person, nor shall I wonder if I am hereafter forever discarded from your good opinion'. </p>
