<p style='text-align: justify;'>Letter from William Napier [later 7th Lord Napier] to Mary Hamilton. He apologises for not writing sooner but he has been dangerously ill with a bowel complaint. He asks that she not mention this when she writes to Mrs Napier, as he has only acknowledged that he was slightly sick to her. Napier is pleased that Hamilton has started riding, as he was uneasy about her sedentary lifestyle. He is happy for a more selfish reason and that is that they can now go riding together when they are in Buxton. The letter continues on the subject of postage and of his sending Hamilton a collar of brawn in the post which was made by an acquaintance of his.</p><p style='text-align: justify;'>Dated at Canterbury.</p>
