The Mary Hamilton Papers

<p style='text-align: justify;'>Letter from Lady Catherine Herries to Mary Hamilton. She writes that John Dickenson had told her that a line from her would give Hamilton 'great pleasure'. She writes that the illness that she had been suffering with and which Dickenson had informed Hamilton of is now over, so she will not write on so 'uncomfortable a subject'. She nevertheless briefly writes on her health as well as on her friendship with Hamilton. Herries notes that Hamilton's husband, John Dickenson, visited her the previous night and she longs to talk to Hamilton about how 'amiable & good he is, how every body loves him, how he loves you' and how he talks of her.</p><p style='text-align: justify;'>Herries continues her letter, writing on her esteem for Hamilton, on the improved health of her sister, Mary, and reports that Lady Cunnynghame is in town and is 'pretty well, not stout'.</p><p style='text-align: justify;'>Dated at St James's Street, [London].</p>
