The Mary Hamilton Papers

<p style='text-align: justify;'>Letter from Louisa Murray, Lady Stormont, to Mary Hamilton, relating to Stormont's family and how they spend their time. Stormont believes that Hamilton is a favourite of her son William as he often talks of her and then 'hides his face'. She writes of having some curtains hung and that when William heard he started crying [imagining that it was people who were getting hung] and asked 'if they were quite dead & [...] would come back & said pray forgive them only this one time & they never will do so no more'. Stormont continues her letter with news of her other children. She also writes of the Royal family and that she is glad to hear from Hamilton that the princes and princesses enjoy sea-bathing and asks Hamilton if she has attempted it herself. Stormont concludes her letter with news of family and friends including Colonel Greville and Lady Warwick.</p>
