<p style='text-align: justify;'>Letter from William Wake to Mary Hamilton. He is flattered that Hamilton wishes that he and John Dickenson were better acquainted and writes to assure her that he 'desire[s] nothing so much, indeed I claim his friendship' as such a man who marries his 'sister must be my brother'. Once he knows him he will make Dickenson his 'pattern' since Hamilton has chosen him for a husband he 'must be all I should wish to be'. Wake writes that he wishes to see Hamilton once more before she marries. He would like her to visit his family which would remind him of 'some of the happiest days [...] [he] ever spent'.</p><p style='text-align: justify;'>Dated at Courteenhall [near Northampton].</p><p style='text-align: justify;'>Original reference No. 21.</p>
