The Mary Hamilton Papers

<p style='text-align: justify;'>Letter from Mary Sharpe to Mary Hamilton. Sharpe writes concerning a long letter she had written to Hamilton a number of weeks before, and fears that she did not receive it. Sharpe writes if Hamilton had received her letter that she hopes that illness is not the cause of her silence. She asks that she write a few lines to her. Sharpe had spent some time at Stile Hill, from which point she intended to visit Hamilton. She had mentioned her intention of this in her lost letter and had waited to hear from her and had since lost the opportunity to visit. On her return to Stile Hill she found her friend [Mrs Carter] 'no worse than usual'. Sharpe ends her letter noting that she is to leave Mrs Carter the following week for Tunbridge Wells, and that she does so as she always takes leave of her 'with an aching heart'.</p><p style='text-align: justify;'>Dated at Deal, [Kent].</p>
