The Mary Hamilton Papers

<p style='text-align: justify;'>Letter from Mary Glover to Mary Hamilton, relating to Richard Glover’s manuscripts. Mary Glover writes to say that it would give her the greatest pleasure to see Hamilton and her husband noting that Anna Maria [Clarke] ‘will be surprised, & how happy she will be to see her dear brother’ [Little is known of the Clarkes excepting that they probably came from Northampton]. Glover and Clarke are to go to a private concert that evening and Glover notes that she understands that Clarke had mentioned to Hamilton some thoughts that she had had on Richard Glover’s manuscripts and that she had shown her Hamilton's answer. Glover is happy that Hamilton agrees with her not giving them to Doctor Brocklesby. She wants to consult with Dr Warton about them but will not do so until she sees him as she does not want to let the original copy out of her sight and she has not the health at the moment to undertake a transcription of them. She writes of advice that she has received about publishing her father's work and that according to a Mr Collier her father was more admired for his epic writing than his dramatic work and advises that Athernaid be published immediately without alteration. Glover notes that if her father were still alive he would have altered some of the work. Mr Collier offered to help Glover with organising the publishing and she asks Hamilton her thoughts on this.</p><p style='text-align: justify;'>Dated at Albemarle Street [London].</p><p style='text-align: justify;'>Original reference No. 13.</p>
