The Mary Hamilton Papers

<p style='text-align: justify;'>Letter from Lady Catherine Herries to Mary Hamilton. She has gone to Great Malvern for a short excursion with her husban Sir Robert and Caroline Foote Nina's daughter whom Herries is bringing up. They first went to Chepstow but, having found it too expensive and given that the reason for their trip was for 'a change of air & scene', they continued on to Great Malvern. Here she reports that she saw 'her good Clarke' [a servant], who has suffered from a 'nervous attack'. Her health is now improving and Herries hopes to have her go to Cheltenham. She will do all she can for her, as she does not want to lose her. Herries continues on the inferior type of servants one sees in 'public places'. She will stop writing on this subject but will not apologise for broaching it, as Hamilton herself will know the importance of it.</p><p style='text-align: justify;'>Herries continues with news of Hamilton's friends who are visiting Cheltenham and on the death of Herries's cousin, Mr G. Foote.</p><p style='text-align: justify;'>Dated at Great Malvern.</p>
