<p style='text-align: justify;'>Letter from William Napier [later 7th Lord Napier] to Mary Hamilton. He writes a sermonizing letter on vices and vanities, and of Hamilton's personality and qualities. Napier writes that Hamilton's mind 'is truly enviable' and that she has a mother who 'indulges her daughter in every thing she desires' knowing that she does not want anything that is not reasonable. He then turns to his correspondence with John Hope (see <a target='_blank' class='externalLink uom-purple' href='https://archiveshub.jisc.ac.uk/manchesteruniversity/data/gb133-ham/ham/1/6/8'>HAM/1/6/8</a>), which had been on the subject of Hamilton herself, observing that 'he may not like my instructions so well'. [Napier provides no further information on the correspondence.]</p><p style='text-align: justify;'>Dated at Canterbury.</p>
