The Mary Hamilton Papers

<p style='text-align: justify;'>Letter from Lady Dartrey to Mary Hamilton. She wishes to know why Hamilton was so close to her in town yesterday and did not come to visit her. She asks as to whether Miss Duckworth can come to Hamilton's room on Monday if there is a possibility that she would see the princesses as it would be a great satisfaction for her to see them. Dartrey supposes that she will only have a glimpse of Hamilton when she comes to visit the princesses. She apologises that she has no 'riddles' to send her but her time is spent nursing her daughter, Julia.</p><p style='text-align: justify;'>Dartrey also forwards Hamilton some lines of poetry relayed to her by the Duchess of Devonshire 'of Lord Palminston's upon a Lock of Hair'.</p><p style='text-align: justify;'>Dated at London.</p>
