<p style='text-align: justify;'>Letter from Mary Hamilton to Charlotte Gunning. Hamilton has received a letter in response of her own of 28 June 1782 and assures Gunning that she does not doubt her affection for her (see HAM/1/15/2/21), and that she had not known that she was so ill. She advises her to take care of herself and suggests that riding on horseback would be beneficial, as 'gentle exercise without fatigue will restore your streng[th] better than medicines'. She continues with news of friends, including the rumour of a proposal of marriage to Miss Murray, and the news that Lady Dartrey is currently staying at the Queen's House but that Hamilton is only able to see her in the drawing room. She reports that the Princess Royal is well and ends her letter in noting that she will send her a letter from 'Perfecta' [Lady Charlotte Finch] for her amusement, but that she must return it and not show it to anyone.</p><p style='text-align: justify;'>Original reference No. 19.</p>
