<p style='text-align: justify;'>Letter from William Napier [later 7th Lord Napier] to Mary Hamilton. He has sent his ‘Globes’ to her by coach and she will soon receive the ‘World, which I lay at the feet of the only young Lady who in my opinion deserves it’. Napier continues that he was unable to pick up a copy of <i>La Vie des Peintres</i> in time for her but has asked a friend to get a copy for him. He also hopes soon to send her a copy of Mrs Carter's Poems. He is unsure whether he will be able to get copies of those that have not yet been printed, although he notes that if Mrs Carter knew Hamilton as well as he does ‘I make no doubt of obliging her sister Excellence’.</p><p style='text-align: justify;'>Dated at Willingham.</p><p style='text-align: justify;'>This item was originally catalogued together with HAM/1/19/17b as HAM/1/19/17.</p>
