The Mary Hamilton Papers

<p style='text-align: justify;'>Letter from Francis Napier, 8th Lord Napier, to Mary Hamilton. He writes of the lack of entertainment at Tewin Water where he is stationed with his Company.

Thankfully, he writes, that he is to move five miles away to Hertford. His relation, Lady Cathcart's estate is in Herefordshire and that her house should be Napier's head quarters (until his officer joins him) and Lady Cathcart has placed her horses and carriages at his command.</p><p style='text-align: justify;'>Dated at Tewin Water [Hertfordshire].</p>
