Summary: Three notes from Charlotte Gunning to Mary Hamilton. In the first note (HAM/1/15/1/26(1)), dated 2 April 1788, Gunning writes that she will not go to Mrs Montagu's that night, as she is to attend her brother's ball (see HAM/1/15/1/25), but can meet Hamilton the following day. She also writes on the subject of clothes.
The second note (HAM/1/15/1/26(3)), dated 11 April 1788, relates to the death of Lady Carlisle's daughter.
The third note (HAM/1/15/1/26(2)), dated 9 April 1788, expresses regret for Hamilton's absence at dinner because of her daughter's illness.

All quotation marks are retained in the text and are represented by appropriate Unicode characters. Words split across two lines may have a hyphen on the first, the second or both fragments (reco-|ver, imperfect|-ly, satisfacti-|-on); or a double hyphen (pur=|port, dan|=ger, qua=|=litys); or none (respect|ing). Any point in abbreviations with superscripted letter(s) is placed last, regardless of relative left-right orientation in the original. Thus, Mrs. or Mrs may occur, but M.rs or Mr.s do not.
