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

Murray (née Cathcart), Louisa

The Mary Hamilton Papers

<p style='text-align: justify;'>Letter from Louisa Murray, Lady Stormont, to Mary Hamilton. She writes of the King's health and notes that Lord Stormont spends most of his time at the House of Lords and that the newspapers will be able to give Hamilton a better idea than she could as to what is going on. One thing that she does note which may be different to what the papers report is that there 'is not the smallest amendment in H.M. if any alteration if news for the worse, & I am convinced he is much more unhappy [...] [when] he is attended by Dr Willis' as he has not now the company of any of the people that he is used to be attended by. It has been two months since his first attack and there is no alteration and this is a bad sign. The King's recovery would be a blessing to this country but Stormont is afraid that there is little chance of this. His 'health is not impaired materially therefore he may long drag on this painful Existence'.</p><p style='text-align: justify;'>Dated at Little Grove.</p>
