The Mary Hamilton Papers

<p style='text-align: justify;'>Letter from Nina Herries [daughter of Sir Robert Herries] to Mary Hamilton. She writes that it would make her happy to see her at her home. She informs Hamilton that Miss Foote [Herries's sister] who had been with her has now gone to school where she will not be able to write to Hamilton and has trusted Herries to give her love to Hamilton. Herries continues that she is to begin studying from the book that Hamilton had given her called <i><i>Thomson's Seasons</i></i> which she is delighted with as is Miss Foote with hers. She and Miss Foote had taken tea at the rocks [in Tunbridge Wells] and had amused themselves and writes of the shops in the area and the things that they make which she thinks 'are very ingenious'. Herries ends her letter with her hopes that Hamilton's and Dickenson's journey back to Derbyshire was pleasant.</p><p style='text-align: justify;'>Dated at Tunbridge Wells, [Kent].</p>
