The Mary Hamilton Papers : Letter from Mary Anne Napier to Mary Hamilton

Napier (née Cathcart), Mary Anne, Lady

The Mary Hamilton Papers

<p style='text-align: justify;'>Letter from Mary Anne Napier [later Lady Napier] to Mary Hamilton. She is pleased to find Hamilton once more in Northampton, which she feels will be better for her mother than being in London. Napier writes of her husband’s health and his suffering with gout. She is in hopes that he will be able to leave his room on the ‘first good Day’. She herself has not left the house since his illness and has not even had the time to write to her brother [Lord Cathcart] until last post. Hamilton cannot expect her to be a better correspondent at such a time. She continues on her own health and that she is happy to hear that Hamilton has such good friends in Sir William and Lady Hamilton and she hopes that they have helped in settling ‘matters properly & amicably between you & Mr Frederick [Hamilton]’. She also writes on the death of Lady Cathcart. </p><p style='text-align: justify;'>Dated at Abbey [Edinburgh].</p>
