The Mary Hamilton Papers

<p style='text-align: justify;'>Letter from Louisa Murray, Lady Stormont, to Mary Hamilton. She writes of her health and says that she goes out in her phaeton each day which, after her long confinement, she finds very agreeable and everything seems new to her. 'I enjoy it much more than those who have been at Liberty to go out the whole summer'. She is sorry that Hamilton is unable to visit and that she and Lord Stormont often talk of her last visit to them and that he too wishes she was of the party.</p><p style='text-align: justify;'>Stormont also writes on her son William who has behaved very 'courageously' after having a 'tooth drawn'. She continues with family news and on the christening of her son Charles who she reports behaved well throughout. He did not cry and stared into the face of the Vicar of Wandsworth the whole time.</p><p style='text-align: justify;'>Dated at Wandsworth Hill.</p>
