The Mary Hamilton Papers

<p style='text-align: justify;'>Letter from Lady Dartrey to Mary Hamilton. She acknowledges the letters she has received from the princesses for which she is much obliged. She addresses the Princess Royal directly in an answer which she asks to be presented to them. She is sure the Princess Royal will believe how mortified she is in not having the honour of the Queen visiting her cottage and if she is able to visit another time then she hopes that the Princess Royal will be of the party and she flatters herself that her daughter will not misbehave as she did when she was in Harleyford.</p><p style='text-align: justify;'>Dartrey writes that nothing could be more distressful for her than not being able to pay her duty on the King's birthday when she would have been able to see Princess Augusta in the Drawing Room and the pleasure of seeing the Princess Royal herself. She ends her letter by noting that all her invalids are well and her house is no longer a hospital and that she will pay her duty at the Drawing Room next Thursday.</p><p style='text-align: justify;'>Dated at Chelsea.</p><p style='text-align: justify;'>Original reference No. 18.</p>
