<p style='text-align: justify;'>Letter from Francis Napier, 8th Lord Napier, to Mary Hamilton. The letter relates to a tour of Scotland and parts of England that Napier undertook with his daughters, Anne and Sophia. The letter also relates to the death of John Dickenson Senior. Napier notes that although his death was expected at his age, the death of a parent is always difficult at any age. He wonders if her situation will now change as he remembers that she had not wanted to stay at Birch Hall but suggests that this may make a good summer residence until she and her husband find a more agreeable residence.</p><p style='text-align: justify;'>Napier also describes the towns and landscapes he visited on his tour of parts of Scotland with his daughters and of a visit to his relations, the Cathcarts at Saltoun Hall. He ends his letter with news from his son William in Portugal on injuries suffered by some of his relations in battle. Napier had four first cousins involved in action in Portugal, three of whom were wounded.</p><p style='text-align: justify;'>Dated at Queen Street [Edinburgh].</p>
