<p style='text-align: justify;'>Letter from Mary Anne Napier [later Lady Napier] to Mary Hamilton. She encourages Hamilton to keep up her correspondence with her guardian [William Napier], as it is good for his spirits when he is away in such dull country quarters. She thanks Hamilton on her daughter Mainie's behalf for the present she has sent her. Mainie is at present a day boarder at school and does not have a moment to herself. She would have written herself, but she is constantly engaged. <p style='text-align: justify;'>Napier notes that she has visited Mr Browne [who looks after the family estate in Scotland (see HAM/1/19/11)] on her behalf to ask him to give her the letter so that she could forward it to Mrs Hamilton, but he assured her that he would forward it himself. Napier continues her letter on the health of Miss Litchfield [from Northampton (see HAM/1/9/53)], who is to return to Buxton for the waters.</p><p style='text-align: justify;'>The letter can be dated from the reference to Napier's brother and his return from St Petersburg.</p></p>
