<p style='text-align: justify;'>Six notes from Charlotte Gunning to Mary Hamilton. In the first note, dated 17 January 1785, Gunning invites Hamilton to visit the Claverings, in the second note (of the same date) she sends her an handkerchief she has requested, and in the third (6 February 1785) Gunning tells Hamilton of what she has been doing, including a visit to Lady Buckingham and being 'engaged' with the Queen. The fourth note, dated 10 February 1785, Gunning asks after Hamilton's health and is sad that she has not seen her for some time. She notes that she has been to the theatre twice with the Queen and once to the opera. In the fifth note (24 February 1785) Gunning thanks Hamilton for her note and journal commenting that she seems to be as busy as she is herself. She also writes of business with a Mr D. and notes that she is loosing 'patience with this foolish Estate'. Gunning writes of her high regard for Hamilton in her final note (21 May 1785).</p><p style='text-align: justify;'>Original reference No. 4.</p>
