The Mary Hamilton Papers

<p style='text-align: justify;'>Note from Louisa Murray, Lady Stormont, to Mary Hamilton, concerning a Royal christening. Stormont will return to town on Monday from Margate for the Christening [of Prince Alfred] and noting that dressing for it will be a 'dreadful operation as I have not worn any thing but a riding habit' since she has been at Margate. She asks if she could come to Hamilton's room before the christening and asks if it is possible to get to her room without passing through the rooms where people will be assembled. At the last christening that she attended she saw 'several pitched battles' by people who will 'remain nameless' and Hamilton will be doing her a great favour if she will allow her to wait in peace and without having to fight her way in.</p><p style='text-align: justify;'>Stormont continues with news of her son, George.</p><p style='text-align: justify;'>Dated at Margate.</p>
