<p style='text-align: justify;'>The sheet contains two letters to Mary Hamilton, the first from Mrs Eleanor Glover and the second from her daughter, Mary Glover.</p><p style='text-align: justify;'>Mrs Glover writes that she is sorry to hear that Hamilton is suffering with an inflammation in her eyes and that she is also disappointed that she has not seen her at Sunning Hill. Glover had mentioned to Hamilton when she was at Mrs Jacksons that she would be happy for her to visit her when in the country, that she would send her the carriage and that the house would be at her liberty. If there is 'any mistake on my part I am very sorry for it'. She now hopes that she can visit her from Bulstrode if the Duchess [Portland] will send her to her. Glover will take her back in her carriage. Glover continues her letter with family news.</p><p style='text-align: justify;'>The second letter is from Mary Glover who describes to Hamilton a pet squirrel her father had given her which had belonged to a Mrs Holland's coachman. She notes that she is already fond of it and that her other squirrel's 'nose is out of joint'.</p><p style='text-align: justify;'>Original reference No. 9.</p>
