The Mary Hamilton Papers

<p style='text-align: justify;'>Incomplete letter from William Wake to Mary Hamilton, without the closing. He writes on behalf of his mother, Lady Wake, to enquire into her health. Wake hopes that the sudden hot weather that there has been does not disagree with Hamilton and suggests a visit to 'our Green Forest' may revive her. He also scolds Hamilton for finding out that she often visits Mrs Carter, who he understands lives in a 'house where the small pox is', but he supposes she will not heed the danger. Wake reports that Charlotte is better and as such he does not believe that she is suffering from whooping-cough. He ends the letter by noting that he need not tell Hamilton how he misses her.</p><p style='text-align: justify;'>Original reference No. 17.</p>
