<p style='text-align: justify;'>Letter from Francis Napier, 8th Lord Napier, to Mary Hamilton, relating to lodgings and an application for assistance. Napier admonishes Hamilton for her not writing to him and hopes to hear from her immediately as he has nothing to do in 'this dirty little village' but read letters. He has received a packet to send to her from Lady Henrietta Hope who wants the 'government to assist a Lady in distress'. He had spoken with her on the subject before he left Scotland and had promised to do all he could to 'forward the application'. He does not ask Hamilton to present it only to 'put me in such a way of doing it as you think may make the request effectual'.</p><p style='text-align: justify;'>Napier details his lodgings in Welwyn. His landlord is a coach driver and he is sat writing in a parlour with a screaming child on one side of him. His only amusements are sleeping, drinking, eating and drilling his six men and scolding his sergeants. Reading is not included as his 'library is small'.</p><p style='text-align: justify;'>Dated at Welwyn [Hertfordshire].</p>
