<p style='text-align: justify;'>Letter from Lady Catherine Herries to Mary Hamilton. She writes of Hamilton's safe journey back home to Leighton and of her pleasure at seeing her and her family in Cheltenham (see HAM/1/17/283). Herries had called on Mrs [Jane] Holman yesterday, and after receiving Hamilton's letter she has called again today and gave her Hamilton's and Louisa Dickenson's message. Herries and Holman spoke of Hamilton and Hamilton's cousin was 'delighted' to hear such an account of her, she 'bade me [Herries] remember most affectionately & say how glad she should be to hear from Louisa'. Mrs Holman looks well and had attended a concert on Saturday. She continues on the concert and on a Mrs Billington, who will sing in the final concert. Herries ends her letter wishing that she could have seen more of Louisa on their visit, but her poor health prevented her from doing so. She continues briefly with general gossip. Sir Charles Blagden is now in Cheltenham with his brother-in-law, he has just come from a tour in Wales.</p><p style='text-align: justify;'>Dated at Cheltenham.</p>
