The Mary Hamilton Papers

<p style='text-align: justify;'>Letter from Lady Dartrey to Mary Hamilton. Hamilton's last letter was full of messages from the Queen and princesses and she assures her that the book did arrive from Bristol and is now at the bookbinder. Although all sections of it have been written by a 'pious' person, Dartrey does not think all are equal. She writes of the princesses and asks Hamilton to pass on her thanks to Princess Elizabeth for her gift of a work box and let her know that she 'will carefully keep it in her Lavender Drawer'. The place where she keeps everything she 'puts a high value on & I shall only take it out, on High Days & Holidays'.</p><p style='text-align: justify;'>The letter continues on the subject of the Queen and princesses and on her friends at Court.</p><p style='text-align: justify;'>Dated at Chelsea.</p>
