The Mary Hamilton Papers

<p style='text-align: justify;'>Letter from Charlotte Gunning to Mary Hamilton. She writes of her health and daily activities. She asks Hamilton to be 'quite easy on the score of my Health [...] for my infirmities & habitual complaint will I fear never leave me'. She went out this morning in the phaeton: 'we went to Hamton to see Lady Carlow &c' [Caroline Dawson, née Stuart (d. 1813), Viscountess Carlow], but they were not at home. She is not sorry to be at home for a day or two, as she has 'a thousand things to arrange – and millions of letters to write, and a journal of three weeks to fill up'. She says that her letter was interrupted by a speech of Bell's [presumably her sister, Barbara Evelyn Isabella Gunning], and the thread of her thoughts has been broken.</p><p style='text-align: justify;'>Dated at St James's [London].</p><p style='text-align: justify;'>Original reference No. 2.</p>
