He notes that ministers are 'callous animals, and like to make people dance after them as long as possible'. He also writes of the advice he gave Hamilton some years ago when she resigned from her court post. He noted that she should attend the Drawing Room on occasions if only to show she does not dislike the inhabitants of the Palace. As Hamilton was a 'wilful Miss' she took no notice of his advice.</p><p style='text-align: justify;'>The letter continues with news of friends and family.</p><p style='text-align: justify;'>Dated at Suffolk Street.</p>
