Glover, Richard

The Mary Hamilton Papers

<p style='text-align: justify;'>Letter from Richard Glover to Mary Hamilton. He writes that he would have much preferred to address Hamilton in person rather than by pen but that circumstances have prevented him from visiting her. He continues on his need for consolation and refers to the Pilgrim's Progress, the passage where 'Christian's companion after many disappointments, difficulties & delays arrived at last to his long wish[e]d for object' and suggests that his wife can be compared to Christian as she is despondent at times with a cold and at others with the heat. He continues that he will leave his wife to explain when she sees her.</p><p style='text-align: justify;'>Dated at James Street, Westminster.</p>
