<p style='text-align: justify;'>Letter from the Duchess of Portland to Mary Hamilton. The letter relates to an invitation the Duchess of Portland and Mrs Delany [Mary Delany, née Granville (1700-1788), English Bluestocking, artist, and letter-writer] had received from the Queen to attend a celebration of Princess Charlotte's birthday. The Duchess informs Hamilton that she is unable to attend, as she is suffering from a headache and will be 'not able to bear the motion of the Chaise', and that even if she herself were able, she is 'fearfull [sic] of [Mrs Delany] being out of an evening'.</p>
