The Mary Hamilton Papers

<p style='text-align: justify;'>Letter from Louisa Murray, Lady Stormont, to Mary Hamilton, relating to an act of charity that Stormont has been involved with. She begins her letter inviting Hamilton to visit her and she also thanks her for the interest she has shown in the ‘poor people’. She writes that Mr Locke has given them four guineas and she and Lord Stormont have given five guineas each towards a subscription which she had suggested. This project had failed as everybody initially said that they would give towards it if it ‘was a true story’. Stormont gave a certificate and an account of the couple’s story and received about two or three guineas but the certificate was lost. Stormont continues to write on the distress of the couple and lists a few people who wished to aid them.</p><p style='text-align: justify;'>The letter continues on Stormont’s children and on the weather.</p><p style='text-align: justify;'>Dated at Little Grove.</p>
