The Mary Hamilton Papers

<p style='text-align: justify;'>Letter from Charlotte Gunning to Mary Hamilton, relating to news on Gunning's house in Horton. She describes their endeavours to keep warm in the cold weather: 'we have left the Drawingroom entirely, & are settled in the Saloon with two fires & a large screen to divide the room so as to dine at one end, & sit at the other – we are now totally separated, for I am writing here very comfortably & uninterrupted by the conversation of the Gentlemen whom we have left to their wine & their conversation at the opposite end of the room'. She has had no return of the pain in her breast, and is to take a quarter of an ounce of bark with five grains of 'long Pepper' every day for the next six months.</p><p style='text-align: justify;'>Original reference No. 31.</p>
