The Mary Hamilton Papers

<p style='text-align: justify;'>Letter from Lady Catherine Herries to Mary Hamilton. She is joyful at the prospect of an unexpected visit from Hamilton and writes that she had called on Hamilton's friend, Anna Maria Clarke (<a target='_blank' class='externalLink uom-purple' href=''>HAM/1/10/1</a>),the previous day to make certain that she would be in town for her visit. Herries missed Clarke but was informed by Miss Clarke's servant that she was making arrangements for lodgings for Hamilton 'so of course I knew you would not wish me to do anything more about it'. She continues that at a visit to Mrs Vesey she longed to tell her and Horace Walpole what 'pleasure' they would both soon have when Hamilton visits but decided against this in case Hamilton wanted to surprise her friends. Herries will enquire at Miss Clarke's on Thursday as to when she can see Hamilton. She has a 'thousand things' to tell her and shall 'fly' to her as soon as she says.</p><p style='text-align: justify;'>Dated at St James's Street, [London].</p>
