<p style='text-align: justify;'>Letter from Francis Napier, 8th Lord Napier, to Mary Hamilton. The letter relates to politics, the general election, Napier's position as Commissioner, and news of acquaintances and his family. Napier writes that he is waiting to hear if 'Ministerial punishment was to be inflicted on my Pocket, as well as my vanity'. He is still waiting to find out as Lord Spencer has yet to reply with news as to whether Napier is to retain his position as Commissioner to the General Assembly. He also writes that his son William has appeared in the <i><i>Gazette</i></i> as he was involved with the demolition of a fort on the coast of France. </p><p style='text-align: justify;'>Dated at Queen Street [Edinburgh].</p>
