The Mary Hamilton Papers

<p style='text-align: justify;'>Letter from Charlotte Finch to Mary Hamilton. She cannot leave London before setting down on paper how tenderly she feels towards Hamilton. Everybody at the Queen’s House speaks ‘kindly’ of Hamilton and both the King and Queen enquire about her and express their concern for her and the Queen has ordered her to tell her to do all possible to take care of herself and not to let any thought of any ‘attendance here by any Disturbance to you, for she wish[e]d you to take your own time’. Finch hopes to find Hamilton calm and composed on her return. She is happy to know that she has such a sensible friend as Miss Clarke with her (see <a target='_blank' class='externalLink uom-purple' href=''>HAM/1/10/1</a>) and asks Hamilton to thank her for her letter.</p><p style='text-align: justify;'>Dated at St James’s [London].</p>
