The Mary Hamilton Papers

<p style='text-align: justify;'>Letter from Lady Catherine Herries to Mary Hamilton. She writes of how welcome Hamilton's letter to her had been and that she had been 'uneasy' at her silence. She had worried that either Hamilton or Dickenson had been ill or that she may have written something in a past letter that had upset Hamilton but adds that this was only a 'passing idea'.</p><p style='text-align: justify;'>Herries is to leave Bath the following day and hopes to return to London by Saturday at the latest. She notes that she need not tell Hamilton what pleasure it would give her to see Dickenson there and that this pleasure would only be surpassed with 'that of seeing one whom he feels the dearest part of himself'. The letter continues on John Dickenson and on Herries's love and friendship for Hamilton.</p><p style='text-align: justify;'>Dated at Bath.</p>
