<p style='text-align: justify;'>Letter from Francis Napier, 8th Lord Napier, to Mary Hamilton, containing family news, especially of a 'claim' between Napier and Lord Cathcart. Napier finds himself in a 'gracious humour' and therefore he has decided to take notice of Hamilton although she does not deserve it. He writes that Lord and Lady Cathcart have arrived and the meeting was 'unpleasant at first'. Napier had made Lord Cathcart feel as though he was offended and 'avoided being alone with him & only conversed in a general way'. This had the effect that Napier wished and Lord Cathcart broke 'the ice' and they talked on 'the money subject'. He writes after a 'little submission' from him he has forgiven him and hopes to be on friendly terms with him. Cathcart has even invited Napier to stay at his house which he has not yet decided whether to accept or not. Cathcart is to travel to Scotland in June to pay the claim in full and 'should those supposed Papers be found hereafter a refund must take place'.</p><p style='text-align: justify;'>Dated at Tewin Water, [Hertfordshire].</p>
