Wake, William, 9th Baronet

The Mary Hamilton Papers

<p style='text-align: justify;'>Letter from William Wake to Mary Hamilton. He thanks Hamilton for her own letter and updates her on the health of his mother and sister. They are to go to Courteenhall next week and he hopes that she will feel better there [his father, Sir William Wake died in 1785]. He writes of Lady Wake's fortitude and that the way she has 'supported' herself has given him an even higher opinion of her. He writes that he always thought that she and Hamilton were the 'two first Women in the World'.</p><p style='text-align: justify;'>Dated at Chelsea.</p><p style='text-align: justify;'>Original reference No. 23.</p>
