The Mary Hamilton Papers

<p style='text-align: justify;'>Letter from Lady Catherine Herries to Mary Hamilton. She writes of Hamilton's having asked her to write to her 'in the way of a journal'. She intends to do so but is in too much of a hurry to do so at present. She writes of her friendship with Hamilton and of her sadness that her husband has had to leave her for a short time. She continues on the health of a child that she is looking after [she had no children of her own, the girl is possibly Nina Herries, her husband's illegitimate daughter]. She describes the child as a 'Poor little angel' and that although she is not terribly ill she is in a 'state which keeps [...] [her] in constant anxiety'. The letter also relates to friends and acquaintances such as Mrs Vesey, Lord Mansfield and Anna Maria Clarke.</p><p style='text-align: justify;'>Dated at Tunbridge Wells, [Kent].</p>
