The Mary Hamilton Papers

<p style='text-align: justify;'>Letter from Francis Napier, 8th Lord Napier, to Mary Hamilton. The letter relates to Napier's sons and to some puzzles that Hamilton has sent him. Whilst visiting an acquaintance Napier was informed that his son William had been taken Prisoner. Napier had not received any news of this. His unnamed acquaintance showed him a letter that William had written to him telling him of his capture. Napier was only relieved of his worry when he himself received a letter from William telling him that he is now in Gibraltar. Napier is at a loss as to the manner of how he had been taken prisoner. His second son, Francis, is on an expedition under Sir Arthur Wellesley and he is eager to hear news of him.</p><p style='text-align: justify;'>Dated at Queen Street [Edinburgh].</p>
