The Mary Hamilton Papers

<p style='text-align: justify;'>Letter from Mary Hamilton to Charlotte Gunning. The letter is concerned with 'mischief-making' at court that was aimed at her. She was accused by 'Atossa' of saying things that she did not; 'I shall live in a continual dread of some secret stab. – for how is [it] possible to guard against such a being[?]'. She writes of being unhappy and how such things make her regret entering her situation at court. She asks that Gunning show this letter to Lady Wake when she has the opportunity, as it will give her some comfort to know that two friends are together sympathizing with her. Hamilton continues her letter with general news of acquaintances.</p><p style='text-align: justify;'>Dated at 'Babel' [i.e. Windsor].</p><p style='text-align: justify;'>Original reference No. 15.</p>
