The Mary Hamilton Papers

<p style='text-align: justify;'>Letter from Lady Catherine Herries to Mary Hamilton, relating to a proposed visit by Herries to Hamilton, and to Herries's health.</p><p style='text-align: justify;'>The letter begins by Herries noting that Hamilton will think her the most 'variable of Beings' for deciding to dine with her the following day rather than the day that they had previously planned. The change is caused by her precarious health. The letter continues on the proposed visit. Herries also needs to rearrange the date of her visit so that she can stay for a longer period at another date. She is concerned that she may have to give up her lodgings if she stays away for a short time. The letter continues on a previous offer from Herries of the use of her carriage to Mr Hamilton [Robert Hamilton, Hamilton's cousin and the son of Frederick Hamilton. Robert was visiting Hamilton at the time; see HAM/1/4/1/35.], on Herries's health and on her taking the 'waters' in Buxton, and with news of Sir Robert Herries.</p><p style='text-align: justify;'>Dated at Buxton, [Derbyshire].</p>
