The Mary Hamilton Papers

<p style='text-align: justify;'>Letter from William Wake to Mary Hamilton, relating to his sister. He notes that they have all [presumably Lady and Sir William Wake] spent the day worrying that his sister was in great danger but that when Dr Norford from Bury arrived he told them that they had been unnecessarily alarmed and that she was out of immediate danger. His sister is suffering from a pain in her side and has had 'frequent fainting fits which are almost every quarter of an Hour' and last for some time. Dr. Norford has given the family some confidence for her health and Wake hopes that the Dr is not mistaken in his opinion. Wake writes that his sister's illness has affected Lady Wake greatly and that she is 'quite worn' and he wishes Hamilton was here to comfort her.</p><p style='text-align: justify;'>Dated at Riddlesworth, [Norfolk].</p><p style='text-align: justify;'>Original reference No. 19.</p>
