She writes of the sympathy of her family and of her hopes that ‘everything is settled to the best for both your interests as far as a strict entail will admit of’. [Charles Hamilton’s will left interest from invested capital to his wife and all his other possessions to his daughter.] Napier asks that Hamilton write to her with news of the will and with information about his death and asks her to let her know if she can help her in any way.</p><p style='text-align: justify;'>Dated at Abbey [Edinburgh].</p>
