The Mary Hamilton Papers : Letter from Richard Glover to Mary Hamilton

Glover, Richard

The Mary Hamilton Papers

<p style='text-align: justify;'>Letter from Richard Glover to Mary Hamilton. He writes that he gains a great deal of entertainment from her letters. Glover does not enjoy writing letters but he takes up his pen on this occasion with pleasure as he is writing to her. He continues his letter on his family and Hamilton's friends the Clarke sisters (<a target='_blank' class='externalLink uom-purple' href=''>HAM/1/10</a>) and notes that Hamilton will expect some news from him about the situation in America but that he has none. Hamilton is currently on a visit to Spa with Lord and Lady Dartrey (see HAM/2/1) and he advises that she seek out there a Dr. Ellis who is also there and who is a 'consummate doctor on that subject'. He hopes that she will become acquainted with him and writes that he is neither 'conceited' nor 'sly' but is a 'sensible' man. He is 'that strange sort of being, who writes knowledge, honour & probity with a great fortune'.</p><p style='text-align: justify;'>Dated at London.</p>
