The Mary Hamilton Papers

<p style='text-align: justify;'>Letter from Anna Maria Clarke to Mary Hamilton. She writes from Hamilton's mother's fireside. Mrs Hamilton is somewhat better today. The doctor had been the previous night and given them 'great encouragement'. She has been given new medicine, which they hope will agree with her. Her mother also sends Hamilton instructions to write to Mr Leathenstone about money and to her uncle to acquaint him that 'the Land may be let'.</p><p style='text-align: justify;'>Clarke continues with news of her sisters and on the pleasure that it will give her to see Hamilton in a few days. She notes that Mrs Glover (see <a target='_blank' class='externalLink uom-purple' href=''>HAM/1/13</a>) sends her love and asks her to tell Hamilton 'that she is glad her Dove is returned'. Clarke continues that she is never alone and that Hamilton's mother and Mr and Mrs Glover are always with her, and she wishes that Hamilton herself was also with them. Leonidas (Mr Glover) sends Hamilton his love. He never forgets to make his toast, and 'it is very hard that we cannot have any pleasure, but that of thinking of you & of drinking your Health'.</p><p style='text-align: justify;'>Dated at James Street [St James's Street, London].</p><p style='text-align: justify;'>Original reference No. 6.</p>
