Glover, Mary

The Mary Hamilton Papers

<p style='text-align: justify;'>Letter from Mary Glover to Mary Hamilton, wishing her a happy birthday. Glover also writes with news of the proposed publication of her father's works. Dr Warton had expressed surprise that Lord Palmerston had heard that he was consulted over the publication of the manuscripts and that he seemed 'hurt' that this was known. Before he left he promised to go to the bookseller, Mr Cadell to talk to him about the works. Glover later received a letter from Anna Maria [Clarke] who thought that Dr Warton was displeased with her and that he did not want to write a biography of her father. That 'as his brother was poet Laureate & he had sons in the church that it might be disadvantage to him & his family, as the King must have seen the paragraphs in the papers'. Clarke writes that she thinks that Glover should 'release' him from this task and Glover did so by letter. She continues that she is now anxious as she has not received a response from her letter. The letter is incomplete.</p><p style='text-align: justify;'>Original reference No. 14.</p>
