The Mary Hamilton Papers

<p style='text-align: justify;'>Letter from Mary Hamilton to Ann Litchfield. She informs Litchfield of being a spectator at an 'curious event'. A student from Aix where she is visiting won a prize in philosophy at the University of Louvain in competition with 6000 scholars. He is the first student to win this prize in 140 years; the last to do so was an ancestor of his. Hamilton writes for Litchfield's amusement of some of the artworks she viewed in Aix and hopes Litchfield does not find her letter tedious. Hamilton continues her letter with anecdotes and with a description of a woman in mourning that she had met.</p><p style='text-align: justify;'>Original reference No. 2.</p>
