The Mary Hamilton Papers

<p style='text-align: justify;'>Letter from Mary Hamilton to Charlotte Gunning. The letter is in several sections. After an introductory section by Mary Hamilton, currently staying with Gunning's family, there are light-hearted interventions by her hosts, with sections by George William Gunning, Barbara Evelyn Isabella ('Bell') Gunning and Sir Robert Gunning. The remainder of the letter is written by Hamilton from the Gunnings' family home in Horton, in which she writes of her pleasant welcome and the beautiful surrounds but still wishes Charlotte Gunning was with her. Hamilton saw Dr Kerr (see <a target='_blank' class='externalLink uom-purple' href=''>HAM/1/8/4</a>) the previous day and he asked that she advise Gunning to have the tooth that is painful for her drawn out, as he does not see it as proper for her to use laudanum, and 'that if You lost rest by suffering pain it might bring on Your old complaints'. The letter continues with news of Lady Wake. Hamilton also complains that Gunning sent her no account of a ball she had attended.</p><p style='text-align: justify;'>Dated at Horton.</p><p style='text-align: justify;'>Original reference No. 22.</p>
