The Mary Hamilton Papers

<p style='text-align: justify;'>Letter from John Farhill to Mary Hamilton, relating to Farhill's health and his hopes of meeting Hamilton.</p><p style='text-align: justify;'>Farhill is mortified to learn that the princesses [and therefore Hamilton] are no longer to visit Kew. He takes comfort in the fact that the Royal Family 'are apt to consider a thing as fixed if it happens once or twice' and so they may begin visiting again.</p><p style='text-align: justify;'>He writes that he has been suffering with a fever and believed that he would feel much better if he could take 'the Bark'. He nevertheless feels stronger than when he first came on to the Country and he sees no reason why he 'should not take a walk on the Terrace at Windsor some Sunday Evening'. He continues that he does not see this as an 'improper thing' and that he will 'stay till' he sees Hamilton.</p>
