The Mary Hamilton Papers

<p style='text-align: justify;'>Incomplete letter from Lady Catherine Herries to Mary Hamilton. She writes that she has asked her husband, Sir Robert, for 'news' [relating to the political situation in Europe] and he has informed her that there is 'none, but different opinions as to whether the peace the Dutch are making with the Emperor will be brought to bear; but that the generality think it will from the prevalence of the French faction; in spite of the discontents of several of the provinces'. [It was in fact signed the following month at Fontainebleau.]</p><p style='text-align: justify;'>The letter continues on general subjects such as Hamilton's interest in knowing more about Herries's friend Mrs Hunter [possibly Mrs Anne Hunter (1741-1821), daughter of Robert Home. She was married to the anatomist John Hunter].</p>
