<p style='text-align: justify;'>Letter from Francis Napier, 8th Lord Napier, to Mary Hamilton. he thanks her for her early intelligence of peace and writes that whilst this may serve the Country it will mean the loss of £1500 for him. As the youngest captain in the 35th Regiment his pay will be reduced from full to half and as a Pensioner of the Crown he ‘cannot receive any Half Pay, being obliged [...] to swear that [...] [he] derive[s] no other enrolments from Government’. Napier has already borrowed the money for his position in his command and he is still to pay this back. The interest from this and the loss of his pay reduces his income from £476 to £201.</p><p style='text-align: justify;'>Dated at Shaftesbury.</p>
