Finch (née Fermor), Charlotte, Lady

The Mary Hamilton Papers

<p style='text-align: justify;'>Letter from Charlotte Finch to Mary Hamilton. She encloses all that is left of the Prince's [Alfred’s] hair for the Queen ‘after I had taken out the Locks I had sent the Princesses yesterday, for his Head was not shaved, or there would have been more’. She has just returned from looking over her house which looks very comfortable and for which she cannot be too grateful to the King and Queen. Finch thanks Hamilton for sending an account of the health of everyone at Kew. Miss Goldsworthy is suffering from a pain in her breast and is coughing so much that a Blister on her breast may be administered. The other governesses are well and wish to be remembered to Hamilton.</p><p style='text-align: justify;'>Dated at Lower Lodge [Windsor].</p>
