The Mary Hamilton Papers : Letter from Richard Glover to Sir William Wake

Glover, Richard

The Mary Hamilton Papers

<p style='text-align: justify;'>Letter from Richard Glover to Sir William Wake, on the health of Lady Wake. Glover has just returned from the country and it gave him great pleasure to read Wake's letter informing him of Lady Wake's recovery. He is also happy to hear that Sir William is well and that they are to go to Buxton for the waters, accompanied by Mary Hamilton. Glover writes that he has much experience of the benefits of such places and that 'they once cur[e]d me of an inveterate rheumatism'. He advises Sir William to inform the master of the Hall in Buxton of his intention 'that you may secure what apartments, rather than lodging rooms, you may want'. He continues that for as 'indifferent as they are, an invalid will be put to some distress by lodging abroad; it being a law, that those without doors are not admitted to bathe, till all within are serv[e]d [...] which means [...] that the former are kept back till noon, or later'.</p><p style='text-align: justify;'>Dated at London.</p>
