The Mary Hamilton Papers

<p style='text-align: justify;'>Letter from Charlotte Gunning to Mary Hamilton, conveying general news. She writes on Louisa Dickenson's smallpox inoculation: Hamilton must be relieved that there is now no risk of infection. She asks that Hamilton write to her of her plans and whether they might meet at Horton, as London seems unlikely. Lady Wake has told Gunning that Hamilton may be spending some time with her. She asks when will this 'sometime be'. She writes of friends, including Mr Digby and his young daughter. She notes that Digby's wife Lucy is dying [Lady Lucy Fox-Strangeways, married Colonel Digby in 1771, and died in August 1787]. She recommends a periodical called The Lounger to Hamilton.</p><p style='text-align: justify;'>Dated at Horton.</p><p style='text-align: justify;'>Original reference No. 22.</p>
