<p style='text-align: justify;'>Letter from Francis Napier, 8th Lord Napier, to Mary Hamilton, relating to Napier's defeat in an election. He has lost the election although he had the votes of the majority of Peers. He notes that this may seem an odd thing but it was a result of the way in which the Votes were chequered'. He lists his supporters who included such peers as Lennox, Gordon, Argyll and Abercorn. He also lists his opponents and notes that in examining the two lists he has no reason to feel ashamed of losing. Napier continues on the election and with news of his son William who is at sea under the command of Lord Cochrane and with general news of society and friends.</p><p style='text-align: justify;'>On p.3 Mary Hamilton wrote a draft letter to a Mr Hill, thanking him for his gift.</p><p style='text-align: justify;'>Dated at Queen Street [Edinburgh].</p>
