The Mary Hamilton Papers

<p style='text-align: justify;'>Letter from Lady Catherine Herries to Mary Hamilton, relating to her search for suitable accommodation for Hamilton's visit to Cheltenham.</p><p style='text-align: justify;'>Herries had located a house for Hamilton's visit which will be vacant from the 14th. It is close to Herries's own home and includes a maid but is priced at 5 guineas a week. Herries has not let it, as it is priced so high and because it is also larger than what Hamilton requires. There is a high demand for houses, especially on the side of the road the house is situated, and she may not be able to get another one. She will try all she can but advises her friend that the 5-guinea house may have been taken before Herries hears back from Hamilton with an answer. She asks for an answer by return post.</p><p style='text-align: justify;'>Dated at Cheltenham.</p>
