The Mary Hamilton Papers

<p style='text-align: justify;'>Letter from Elizabeth Iremonger to Mary Hamilton, relating to her father and Mrs Iremonger's health. Iremonger is pleased that Dickenson's 'prescription' has done him good and notes that her father declares that he has not felt the benefit from the same prescription. He is still suffering from his fall from his horse (HAM/1/8/1/4). A bed has been made for him in the Library so that he can now spend some time downstairs. The swelling of his thigh has improved somewhat and he has a good appetite. He is looking almost as good as he was before his accident and 'would be cheerful if He could banish that sad reflection which is perpetually recurring, that He shall never have the use of his leg'.</p><p style='text-align: justify;'>Mrs Iremonger's health is also poor and she suffers greatly with her eyes and is being treated with a blister on her arm. </p><p style='text-align: justify;'>Dated at Wherwell [Andover].</p>
