She recalls the conversation she had with Hamilton at their last meeting and acknowledges that she was being selfish in causing Hamilton 'some painful sensations' for the benefit of her own mind. The value 'certainty it has given me of my [...] possessing a place in your affection' is strong. Now she knows that she is loved by Hamilton, she will never 'part with the idea'. The letter continues on Sharpe's health and of her taking the waters in Bath.</p><p style='text-align: justify;'>Dated at Bath.</p>
