The Mary Hamilton Papers

<p style='text-align: justify;'>Incomplete journal-letter from Lady Catherine Herries to Mary Hamilton, concerning a financial dispute and conveying general news of family and friends including Mr Glover.</p><p style='text-align: justify;'>Lady Herries writes that Sir Robert Herries has arrived safely at Calais and is now on his way to Paris. She notes that she has left the first sheet of her letter in her drawing room where work men are currently working on the carpets and that she is unable to retrieve it at the present time.</p><p style='text-align: justify;'>The letter is also concerned with a financial transaction attributed incorrectly to Hamilton (see HAM/1/17/63). Herries notes that Hamilton's uncle, Frederick Hamilton (see <a target='_blank' class='externalLink uom-purple' href=''>HAM/1/4/1</a>-<a target='_blank' class='externalLink uom-purple' href=''>HAM/1/4/2</a>) had come [probably referring to Sir Robert Herries's bank] and that he is to see his lawyer with regards this matter and that there would be no trouble for Hamilton as it can be proved that the note has nothing to do with her as the Christian name on it is incorrect.</p><p style='text-align: justify;'>Herries continues noting that there is now little hope of Mr Glover's (see <a target='_blank' class='externalLink uom-purple' href=''>HAM/1/13</a>) recovery. The letter continues dated 1 December and relates to Mrs Vesey.</p>
