Herries (née Foote), Catherine

The Mary Hamilton Papers

<p style='text-align: justify;'>Letter from Lady Catherine Herries to Mary Hamilton. She thanks Hamilton for her letter and asks if she had received her own, which was sent under the care of Lord Napier and which also included a letter to pass on to Mrs Carter (HAM/1/17/243). It is a pleasure for Herries to receive Hamilton's letters. They bring Herries 'back to people & scenes so dear to me & above all to yourself', but she does not wish Hamilton to write them if it would 'worry' her to do so, as this would take the pleasure away from her. Herries has not heard anything from Miss Bowdler and is anxious to hear from her, especially so because of 'this dreadful French fleet gone no one knows not where'. She is also concerned for her brother [Edward Foote]. Herries ends her letter writing that she is sorry to hear that Hannah More is still unwell'.</p><p style='text-align: justify;'>Dated at Cheltenham.</p>
