Kerr (née Tompson), Mary

The Mary Hamilton Papers

<p style='text-align: justify;'>Letter from Mary Kerr to Mary Hamilton. She is glad to see her home safely and happily, so that she can enjoy her harmonious home life. She explains that, because of how she chooses to spend her time at home, she rarely has the opportunity to spend time on her friendships with the people she likes, and that, as a result, she appreciated the time they were recently able to spend together, strengthening their friendship and allowing her the opportunity to be introduced to Mrs Dickenson’s loved ones. She returns a Guinea with the letter, that Mrs Moore found upon her table immediately after Mrs Dickenson had last paid her a visit. Mrs Moore misses having her lodgers [Mr and Mrs Dickenson?] and holds them in the highest regard. She brings her friend up to speed on the health of her neighbours and mentions a Mrs Foster, Mrs Butler, Thursly and the Armytages. She tells her that her husband is still unhappy about Malta but nevertheless added his corps to the Blues, Militia and Yeomen, who all made an appearance in the square on Tuesday, followed by some illuminations in the evening. Her husband was going to write himself but has been very busy with work, having just been called out to an accident some distance away, but Mrs Dickenson can rely on him for Saturday.</p>
