The Mary Hamilton Papers

<p style='text-align: justify;'>Letter from Charlotte Finch to Mary Hamilton. She has received a note from Mr Planta informing her of his sister's death. He writes of the Queen’s goodness to his sister and adds that ‘I suppose it will be improper to leave the Corpse in the Palace any longer than is absolutely necessary [...] [and trusts to Finche’s] discretions when it should be removed’. She asks Hamilton to ask Mrs Hagedorn to show the letter to the Queen that evening so she can receive orders as to what to do as she knows that the Queen goes to Kew in the morning and Finch may not get the opportunity of speaking with her.</p>
