<p style='text-align: justify;'>Letter from Francis Napier, 8th Lord Napier, to Mary Hamilton, concerning his marriage. He writes that although Hamilton had refused to write first to him when he was a bachelor, he thought that the respect due to his 'exalted station' would have encouraged her to write to him. He notes that his wife 'loves and esteems' her and 'regrets much the distance which prevents her cultivating an acquaintance and friendship with you'. He reports that his choice of a wife is approved of by his friends and that he has now been married for seven weeks and he has as yet not experienced 'an unpleasant Moment'. He writes on his wife's personality and on his sisters.</p><p style='text-align: justify;'>Dated at Edinburgh.</p>
