Glover, Richard

The Mary Hamilton Papers

<p style='text-align: justify;'>Letter from Richard Glover to Mary Hamilton. He writes that since he has been in Bath for his health he has been mortified by seeing 'the character of invalid transferred from me to my two companions'. His wife and daughter have been confined for a week with colds. The sunshine would draw them both to the window where they had a view of 'a large circumference all alive & crowded with strings of all colours in sprightly motion to the morning diversions'. In the evening all they could hear were cries of 'chair, chair' as people hurried to balls, concerts and theatres. He notes that they saw all but that each 'sat like Patience on a monument' whilst he read to them.</p><p style='text-align: justify;'>Dated at Bath.</p>
