The Mary Hamilton Papers : Note from Louisa Murray, Lady Stormont, to Mary Hamilton

Murray (née Cathcart), Louisa

The Mary Hamilton Papers

<p style='text-align: justify;'>Note from Louisa Murray, Lady Stormont, to Mary Hamilton. She begins by saying how much she appreciates 'their majesty's goodness on all occasions'. She continues with news of Lady Cathcart and her son (see HAM/1/18/48) and writes that she is unable to nurse her son herself. By the third day of his birth she was so 'fatigued' that she was told 'her child would suffer for it which determined her to give it up' and as a result both she and her child are now well.</p><p style='text-align: justify;'>Stormont then turns her attention to Lord Fairford whom Hamilton had been enquiring after and notes that there is no truth in the 'report' about him [no details are given as to what this relates to]. She writes that her husband Lord Stormont has not read the verses that Hamilton had mentioned and that she wishes that Hamilton had more time to become more 'acquainted' with her son William before he leaves for school'.</p><p style='text-align: justify;'>Dated at Wandsworth Hill.</p>
