<p style='text-align: justify;'>Copy of a letter from Sophia Fielding to her daughter Sophia. The letter relates to her being taken prisoner in Spain (see HAM/1/12/29). Fielding writes to Sophia that she knows that she would have already heard of her situation but that she need not worry as she is being treated very well. The Governor of Vigo is an ‘old Spanish General’ and he gave them a ‘great dinner yesterday’. She writes that she has met all the officers including the American Captain [Hill] whose ship captured the vessel that Fielding was travelling on.</p><p style='text-align: justify;'>Fielding hopes to be allowed to travel to Portugal in a few days and from there to find a ship to take her to England. She should expect her when she sees her and her greatest upset in being taken prisoner is being so long away from her children. The letter continues on the subject and notes that it has been a comfort having Mr and Mrs Graham with her.</p><p style='text-align: justify;'>Dated at Vigo in Galicia [Spain].</p>
