<p style='text-align: justify;'>Letter from Francis Napier, 8th Lord Napier, to Mary Hamilton, relating to friends and acquaintances. Napier writes that he leaves Edinburgh soon but that Hamilton 'should suspend [...] [her] joy' as he does not intend to wait on her until her next birthday. He writes of Prince Frederick's military promotion and of his hopes that he and the Prince of Wales have 'sensible men about them' adding that young men 'will ruin them both'. Napier informs Hamilton that 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>] is now at his father's and that he asked very much about her and has 'threatened' to write to her.</p><p style='text-align: justify;'>Dated at Edinburgh.</p>
