<p style='text-align: justify;'>Letter from Charlotte Gunning to Mary Hamilton, relating to the hot weather and to news of family and friends. Gunning writes from Horton and notes that a thunderstorm that morning has brought some relief 'from that dreadful weight which was become quite oppressive'. She hopes for more rain, as the weather has dried everything up and all the cattle are starving. She continues that the animals' cries for food 'go to one's heart' but reports that they are better off for water than their neighbours. She also writes that the severity of the last winter has killed all her greenhouse plants and many of the shrubs of her garden, but she enjoys watching 'the progress of every plant' as they return.</p><p style='text-align: justify;'>Dated at Horton.</p><p style='text-align: justify;'>Original reference No. 6.</p>
