Dawson (née Freame), Philadelphia Hannah, Baroness Cremorne

The Mary Hamilton Papers

<p style='text-align: justify;'>Letter from Lady Dartrey to Mary Hamilton. She writes that she has had a headache by having looked her 'eyes out at the delightful contents of the Museum'. Queen Charlotte has sent Dartrey a present and she is unsure if she can thank her directly or she should do so by someone at Court and asks Hamilton to pass an enclosed letter to the Queen if she thinks it proper to do so. She also writes that the book that she had intended on presenting to the Queen is not yet ready and that she would be honoured if she could see the Queen at her house and that she would never have presumed to suggest such a thing if she had not given her 'such encouragement by her gracious goodness' to her.</p><p style='text-align: justify;'>Dated at Chelsea.</p>
