<p style='text-align: justify;'>Letter from Francis Napier, 8th Lord Napier, to Mary Hamilton, relating to Sir William Hamilton. The Cathcarts have informed Napier that Sir William was buried that morning. He was buried next to the grave of his first wife, Lady Catherine Hamilton. His Welsh estate was left to Charles Greville and his male heirs. The property has debts and has a jointure of £800 a year to Lady Hamilton. Napier has not heard of any legacies. He notes, ‘of Lord Nelson, Lady Cathcart said nothing’ and he did not feel proper to ask. The newspapers, however, will ‘probably soon tell you whether he remains in the House with Lady Hamilton’.</p><p style='text-align: justify;'>Napier also notes that there is probably going to be a change in the Ministry and lists the ministers and their likely positions. </p><p style='text-align: justify;'>Dated at St James's Street [London].</p>
