The Mary Hamilton Papers

<p style='text-align: justify;'>Letter from Louisa Murray, Lady Stormont, to Mary Hamilton, concerning attending the 'Drawing Room' and Queen Charlotte. She writes of her joy on the news of the 'taking of Charleston' [The siege of Charleston in South Carolina was one of the major battles near to the end of the American War for Independence. The City surrendered to the British in May 1780]. Everybody at court looked happy at the news. The letter continues with news of her family, including her children's education. Stormont is not happy with Charlotte's Governesses methods of teaching but does not have the 'courage' to 'part with her' and that this will probably be carried out when her brother returns.</p><p style='text-align: justify;'>Dated at Wandsworth Hill.</p>
