The Mary Hamilton Papers : Note from William Wake to Mary Hamilton

Wake, William, 9th Baronet

The Mary Hamilton Papers

<p style='text-align: justify;'>Note from William Wake to Mary Hamilton. He cannot resist the 'temptation' of sending Hamilton a note via Mrs Best, who is to visit town. He writes that his mother has noted that Hamilton mentioned him in her last letter to her and that she had not forgotten her promise to write him occasionally. Wake writes that he 'misses' Hamilton 'every minute' and wishes she would visit. He writes that his mother had been 'scolding' him for 'defacing' her tables by carving Hamilton's initials on them. He hopes Hamilton will excuse him making such a use of her name.</p><p style='text-align: justify;'>Original reference No. 15.</p>
