The Mary Hamilton Papers : Letter from Sir Robert Herries to John Dickenson

Herries, Robert

The Mary Hamilton Papers

<p style='text-align: justify;'>Letter from Sir Robert Herries to John Dickenson. He thanks Dickenson for his letter and for Hamilton's enquiry of Lady Herries, who still suffers with 'fever & inflammation in her eyes'. Lady Herries was only able to travel as far as Verona on her way home before she became too ill to continue her journey. He reports that she will be unable to return before next summer because of her health, and that his friend Mr Sackville has been good enough to stay with her, although he acknowledges that Mr Sackville 'would now find it difficult to get home by himself in the present times'. They are expecting to be joined by friends in Verona, who will continue on with them to Bologna if Lady Herries is strong enough to travel. If not, she will spend the winter in Verona. Herries congratulates Dickenson and his wife and sends her his compliments, as does his daughter Mrs Edward Foote [Nina].</p><p style='text-align: justify;'>Dated at London.</p>
