Herries (née Foote), Catherine

The Mary Hamilton Papers

<p style='text-align: justify;'>Letter from Lady Catherine Herries to Mary Hamilton. She has checked her letter book and it seems that she and Hamilton have not written to each other for some time. She hopes that Hamilton still intends to visit Cheltenham, as it would greatly disappoint her if she was not to see her. Herries's friend Miss Bowdler is back in England, she has settled in Bath and hopes to spend the winter close to her sister, 'who is a great invalid' at the moment. Herries hopes that they can spend a fortnight together. The time of the visit has not been decided and depends on her health and on commitments. Herries wishes to know when she can expect Hamilton and advises that the waters are more beneficial in moderate rather than cold weather, at least this is Mr Newell's opinion. Herries continues on her sister-in-law, Mrs Robert Foote, who is in Cheltenham for a few days. Mrs Robert Foote's affairs are now settled [after the death of her husband, see HAM/1/17/285] and she now has some independence.</p><p style='text-align: justify;'>Dated at Cheltenham.</p>
