The Mary Hamilton Papers

<p style='text-align: justify;'>Letter from Lady Catherine Herries to Mary Hamilton. She writes on Hamilton's proposed visit to Cheltenham and on looking for suitable lodgings for her and her family.</p><p style='text-align: justify;'>From Hamilton's own letter, Herries sees that she had not yet received her own telling her of the Holmans and possibly also of Mrs Rachel Hamilton's visit to Cheltenham, and she hopes the news will not prevent Hamilton's own visit (see HAM/1/17/280). The newspapers reports that Mr Holman [an actor] has had an 'Engagement here for six nights', which ends this week. Whether or not he will stay in Cheltenham after this Herries does not know. As she had noted in her previous letter, if Mrs Holman's other [Rachel Hamilton] does come, it will not be until October.</p><p style='text-align: justify;'>Herries continues with news of other friends. She reports that the Duke and Duchess of Bedford are in Cheltenham for two or three weeks, but she does not know them at all.</p><p style='text-align: justify;'>Dated at Cheltenham.</p>
