Herries (née Foote), Catherine

The Mary Hamilton Papers

<p style='text-align: justify;'>Letter from Lady Catherine Herries to Mary Hamilton. She does not know what to tell Hamilton about 'news' but notes that 'for some days past the idea of peace has prevailed - I pray God, it may end so! [B]ut [...] I believe such is the confused state both of France as well as Holland' that the outcome is not predictable.</p><p style='text-align: justify;'>Herries continues on her pleasure at receiving Hamilton's last letter as it indicates that Hamilton's eyes are better. She advises her not to write too much so that she may rest her eyes. She is sure to like Hamilton's friend from court, d'Agincourt [Jean Baptiste Louis Georges Seroux d’Agincourt: see <a target='_blank' class='externalLink uom-purple' href=''>HAM/1/7/1</a>] as much as Hamilton does herself. [Presumably Hamilton has suggested she visit him when she travels to Paris.]</p><p style='text-align: justify;'>Dated at Kensington, [London].</p>
