Blosset, Dorothy

The Mary Hamilton Papers

<p style='text-align: justify;'>Letter from Dorothy Blosset to Mary Hamilton. She writes on mutinies in the British Fleet [possibly the Spithead mutinies by sailors in the Royal Navy]. Blosset writes to ask a favour from Hamilton. She knows that Hamilton sees a great deal of Lord and Lady Cremorne and request her to ask them to inform her on the 'real state of affairs in Ireland'. She has tried to get news from Ireland herself and had not received an answer to her letter and is afraid to write again. She has heard and read various reports and is in suspense and writes that she 'cannot sleep' and that the 'accounts of the 2d mutiny was so very alarming and also is its influence'.</p><p style='text-align: justify;'>Dated at Leighton Buzzard [Bedfordshire].</p>
