The Mary Hamilton Papers

<p style='text-align: justify;'>Letter from Lady Catherine Herries to Mary Hamilton, conveying general news and expressing Herries's wish to hear from Hamilton and her family. It seems 'an age' to Herries since she last received a letter from Hamilton, and she longs to hear news from her friend. She notes that she received her last letter on 21 February and wants to know that Hamilton and her family are well. Herries continues with news of her family and mutual friends, writing that Mrs [Elizabeth] Carter has just visited her at home and that she was suffering from a 'troublesome' headache, but that 'on the whole she's not worse than for some years past'.</p><p style='text-align: justify;'>Dated at St James's Street, [London].</p>
