The Mary Hamilton Papers : Letter from Sir Robert Herries to John Dickenson

Herries, Robert

The Mary Hamilton Papers

<p style='text-align: justify;'>Letter from Sir Robert Herries to John Dickenson. He writes that one of Dickenson's neighbours, a Mr Joylis, called on him yesterday but did not ask to come in once he was informed that Sir Robert was ill. He left the letter Dickenson had written to Sir Rober and a 'visiting ticket', without leaving any direction as to where he is staying. Herries notes that his servant Thomas 'was stupid enough not to ask where he lodged'. Herries is not able to go out to enquire after him and his few visitors are not aware of him. Herries continues on the subject of horses and on his health. He is recovering from a 'paralytic stroke', which greatly affected his lower face and throat. Herries reports that Lady Herries's relation Miss Foote has left for Kent some time ago to marry. He hopes that she will be happy as she 'deserves a good husband'.</p><p style='text-align: justify;'>Dated at Cheltenham.</p>
