Napier, Francis Scott, 8th Lord

The Mary Hamilton Papers

<p style='text-align: justify;'>Letter from Francis Napier, 8th Lord Napier, to Mary Hamilton, asking why she 'presumes to find fault' with his pride. He commends himself for it in order to convince the 'High & Mighty, that I care not for them'. His election is not secure. He does not care 'three sixpence whether [...] I take my seat in the hospital of Incurables'. The party will court you when they need you but will just as soon drop you. The letter continues on politics and on Napier's relations.</p><p style='text-align: justify;'>Dated at Wilton Lodge [Roxburghshire].</p>
