The Mary Hamilton Papers

<p style='text-align: justify;'>Letter from Mary Sharpe to Mary Hamilton. Sharpe writes with her concern for Hamilton's poor state of health and spirits. She will keep what Hamilton has written to her in confidence but offers her advice. She does not wish to 'dictate' what Hamilton's decision should be, as she is the best judge of her own affairs, but she should make her decision [Hamilton's wish to resign from her Court position] when her health has returned. 'If you allow their fascinating power to bias you, you may with returning health, regret a resolution not to be recalled'. When she is well again, she will be able to see the advantages and disadvantages of her situation and then be best able to decide.</p><p style='text-align: justify;'>Dated at South Lodge.</p>
