<p style='text-align: justify;'>Incomplete and unsigned letter to Mary Hamilton, possibly from Lady Spencer or her daughter, the Duchess of Devonshire, relating to Sir William and Lady Hamilton. The author notes that Sir William composed a charade and that he has been a convert to them after so long disliking them. [The author writes from 'the house in Althorpe' so the author may possibly be Lady Spencer or the Duchess who were both acquainted with Hamilton] The author writes about society life noting that she is disliked by a section of the society and does not get invited to their balls. She also writes of 'Court' [Dews] who Hamilton has written to her of and she notes that she does not remember him but writes 'if he had not been wonderfully clever – I should have been very weary of his Passion'.</p><p style='text-align: justify;'>Dated at Althorp, [Northamptonshire].</p>
