<p style='text-align: justify;'>Letter from Charlotte Gunning to Mary Hamilton. She writes about her unhappiness over the 'Sister of my Heart' [Barbara Evelyn Isabella Gunning] leaving in order to take a 'change of air' in Nancy, France, for the benefit of her health. Since her sister, her father and brother have gone, Gunning has been spending much time with Lady Carlisle, who she describes as being exceedingly kind to her. She notes that she has dined and supped at Lady Carlisle's every day, 'at least I did so till the Argylls came, to whom I now give some of my time'. She reports that the Argylls are all well although the Duchess has grown fat. Gunning writes of her usual daily routine, rising early and playing the harpsichord. She notes that 'practising musick' and letter-writing take up a great part of her day. Gunning continues with news of friends, including Lady Dartrey, Mr Stephen Digby and Lady Wake, whose husband had recently died.</p><p style='text-align: justify;'>Dated at St James's [London].</p><p style='text-align: justify;'>Original reference No. 8.</p>
