The Mary Hamilton Papers

<p style='text-align: justify;'>Letter from Louisa Murray, Lady Stormont, to Mary Hamilton. She is pleased to hear that Hamilton had found her daughter as ‘smiling & well’ as she could wish. She was unhappy to part with Hamilton’s company. Stormont knows that Hamilton is very fond of ‘bookish conversation [whilst] a very little does for me’. Whilst she played on the harp she writes that she ‘heard enough conversation of that sort between William & his Papa to satisfy me it must e very instructive to one Party & agreeable to the other’. She continues on her son William and a task that he has been given on Latin verses and on the time that he spends on such pursuits. She worries about his health as he may be ‘fatigued by the Exertions of his mind’.</p><p style='text-align: justify;'>Dated at Little Grove.</p>
