The Mary Hamilton Papers

<p style='text-align: justify;'>Letter from Mary J. Jackson to Mary Hamilton, relating to the ill health of Jackson's Aunt Anna. Jackson entreats Hamilton to write to her on the subject of her health and spirits and on some 'business' that she is involved in that is causing her some distress. Jackson is worried that if she does not start taking care of herself that she will be in a 'dreadful state'. Mrs Watson, the woman with whom she lodges, has said that her aunt makes her feel 'quite melancholy' and notes that before she went to Ramsgate her aunt 'never went to Bed but was employed in counting over the boxes Papers etc which were all packed up & which she meant to take with her'. Jackson is certain that an 'indifferent person' would believe that her aunt is 'out of her senses'.</p><p style='text-align: justify;'>Original reference No. 14.</p>
