The Mary Hamilton Papers

<p style='text-align: justify;'>Letter from Francis Napier, 8th Lord Napier, to Mary Hamilton. His regiment are now quartered in Edinburgh and this has given him the opportunity to see his family and farm, which made up for the march from Liverpool. He had been preparing his regiment for a review which has now been completed and he can soon return home. He would have returned home sooner except that disturbance on board the Defiance man of war meant that a number of his men were required to restore order. He notes that the ring-leaders were detained and will now have to answer for their 'mutinous conduct’.</p><p style='text-align: justify;'>Dated at Edinburgh Castle.</p>
