Murray (née Cathcart), Louisa

The Mary Hamilton Papers

<p style='text-align: justify;'>Letter from Louisa Murray, Lady Stormont, to Mary Hamilton. She is sorry that she was unable to visit Hamilton at Kew as she intended to do so each day but was disappointed from doing so each time. Stormont had not been able to have a moment to herself and had stayed a week at Warwick Castle where she found Lady Warwick much better. Lady Warwick now has a ‘fine little Boy’ of about three months. Stormont continues with news of the Duke and Duchess of Atholl, with whom she is to stay at Atholl House, and her sisters, and of having the pleasure of seeing Lord Napier (<a target='_blank' class='externalLink uom-purple' href=''>HAM/1/20</a>) in Edinburgh and Miss Napier, who she notes is ‘much to be pitied just now, as she has the charge of her sister Jane who is dying’. Stormont is concerned for her, as she is so attentive to her sister that she may harm her own health. She also writes of Napier’s sister, Mrs [Mainie-Schaw] Hunter, whose friends are pleased with her marriage, and she has heard a good account of her husband’s character. Stormont ends her letter asking for Hamilton to write to her soon.</p><p style='text-align: justify;'>Dated at Balgowan.</p>
