The Mary Hamilton Papers

<p style='text-align: justify;'>Letter from Lady Cecilia Johnston to John Dickenson, who thanks her friends for remembering her and for the brace of partridges that they have sent her. She writes that she was at Windsor last week and that Miss Goldsworthy was there and that she was looking well, though she is deaf and 'quite shock[e]d me as she does not hear one word in ten, even with the assistance of [the] Trumpet'. She hopes the Dickensons have found a house to their taste with a saloon large enough to contain all of Hamilton's 'curiositys'. Dated at Hampton Court Palace.</p>
