<p style='text-align: justify;'>Letter from Francis Napier, 8th Lord Napier, to Mary Hamilton. He discusses his attempts at gaining a seat in the House of Lords as one of the representatives from Scotland. He notes to Hamilton that ‘this Parliamenteering is not because I was very anxious about the matter, but because I was obstinately determined to convince some of my ill wishers, that I could get in if I would’. He may repent of this vanity at some point but he notes that had Parliament met he proposed to take his seat. Napier also writes of his wife who is visiting her brother at Widdington Castle so that she can bathe in the sea. She has suffered a miscarriage and is still very weak.</p><p style='text-align: justify;'>Dated at Edinburgh.</p>
