<p style='text-align: justify;'>Letter from Francis Napier, 8th Lord Napier, to Mary Hamilton, relating to the King's health. He tells her to ignore the 'villainous' reports on the King's health that are being put about by 'traitors'. From his knowledge the King is doing well and sleeps seven hours a night. He has his usual appetite and has even been out on horseback in the riding school. The King cannot be expected to regain all his strength so quickly and like 'yourself, I swear whenever I hear the Rascals talking of Palsy'. He also writes that he has just had word that Sir Hyde Parker's [Navel Officer (1739-1807)] Fleet has passed the Sound on the 30 March with hardly any loss.</p><p style='text-align: justify;'>Napier ends his letter noting that seventeen years ago today 'I was executed [married] at St George's Church, Hanover Square'.</p><p style='text-align: justify;'>Dated at St James's Street, [London].</p>
