Kinderley, John

The Mary Hamilton Papers

<p style='text-align: justify;'>Letter from John Kinderley to Mary Hamilton. The letter concerns the death of Mr Jackson and enquiries Hamilton had made about a Mr Cooke. Kinderley understands that Cooke was a music master to the ladies and that he does not know of his 'partiality for Miss Mary, but [has] [...] recently heard it suspected that he had a preference to Miss Jackson'. He will mention it to Mr Boles and will not mention Hamilton's name when he does so. Although Cooke is a respectable musician, Kinderley does not think him a 'proper alliance for Miss Jackson, if therefore it sho[ul]d turn out that any thing of this kind is going on I shall be very happy to confer with you & Miss Clarke & act agreeable to your wishes'.</p><p style='text-align: justify;'>Dated at Symonds Inn [London].</p><p style='text-align: justify;'>Original reference No. 18.</p>
