<p style='text-align: justify;'>Letter from Charlotte Finch to Mary Hamilton. She writes about Hamilton’s letter to Mrs Fielding and notes that Mrs Fielding had left 36 hours before its arrival for Lisbon. [This letter was sent before she had received the news that her daughter’s ship had been taken by an American vessel.] The letter continues on the health of her son. He has been taking the waters at Caldas which are said to be beneficial but are best taken over a period of time.

She expects that everyone is now settled in Windsor, ‘how differently my dear Miss Hamilton are you & I situated’.</p><p style='text-align: justify;'>Dated at Caldas.</p>
