The Mary Hamilton Papers : Letter from Charlotte Margaret Gunning to Mary Hamilton

Digby (née Gunning), Charlotte Margaret

The Mary Hamilton Papers

<p style='text-align: justify;'>Letter from Charlotte Gunning to Mary Hamilton. She is happy to have received a letter from Hamilton but asks for more information about her. She wishes to know if she draws or paints now that she has more leisure to do so. She refers to the 'dejection' she wrote of in her last letter to Hamilton, and writes that she agrees with all Hamilton has said in her letter to her on the subject. She writes more on her feelings, on her health and on the health of Princess Elizabeth. She writes of society and the opera and of a Mr Newman, who irritates her, as he is allowed to visit Horton whenever he likes and 'gives himself the air of being my Father[']s Friend'.</p><p style='text-align: justify;'>Original reference No. 10.</p>
