The Mary Hamilton Papers

<p style='text-align: justify;'>Letter from Louisa Murray, Lady Stormont, to Mary Hamilton. She writes of Dickenson sending her a ‘very ingenious machine’, a model of a churn. She notes the trouble she has had in getting anything ‘executed here’ and that everything is expensive. She is happy to have the model which should ‘diminish the labour of churning that her Dairy maid was delighted’.</p><p style='text-align: justify;'>The letter continues on Stormont’s children and her health. She can provide no information to Hamilton on the King as some people report that his health is good whilst others say different, that he is ‘dejected & melancholy’. He remains out of the reach of many people and only sees ‘particular people’.</p><p style='text-align: justify;'>Dated at Little Grove.</p>
