<p style='text-align: justify;'>A note dated 19 November 1805, written by Hamilton, in which she refers to Mary J. Jackson's letter to her, noting that she can be little acquainted with her heart if she believes that her letter did not make an impression on her feelings. If Jackson had followed the advice Hamilton had given her before Mrs Horseley's death then it would have been better for her. That he should have had a more suitable companion than a young woman. She continues that what has past cannot now be undone and advises that the sooner that she moves from her 'present abode' the sooner the gossip will cease as she assumes it is not her 'intention of marrying a Bishop'. Hamilton ends her letter noting that she loved Jackson's mother 'w[i]th too sincere a friendship not to be very much interested in the welfare & honour of her daughter'.</p><p style='text-align: justify;'>This item was originally catalogued together with HAM/1/10/2/17/1 as HAM/1/10/2/17.</p><p style='text-align: justify;'>Original reference No. 18.</p>
