The Mary Hamilton Papers

<p style='text-align: justify;'>Letter from Elizabeth Iremonger to Mary Hamilton, relating to her father’s health and to general news of family. Mr and Mrs Iremonger send Hamilton their thanks for the recipe she had sent. Unfortunately it did not have the desired effect of Mr Iremonger’s health which has been worse over the past two weeks. His thigh has swelled to double its size. In ‘short he certainly is in a very melancholy affecting state’. Each surgeon who has examined him say the same which is that time is needed for his recovery. She wishes he were in town and in a warmer house but he will be unable to travel in a coach. Mrs Iremonger is as can be imagined anxious for Mr Iremonger and is also suffering herself with an eye complaint.</p><p style='text-align: justify;'>Iremonger concludes her letter with news of her family and friends.</p><p style='text-align: justify;'>Dated at Whirwell [Andover].</p>
