Summary: Three notes from Mary Hamilton to Charlotte Gunning. The first note is
dated 3 June 1781. Hamilton writes that Gunning can keep the books that
she has sent her until Mrs C. [Elizabeth Carter] sends for them. The
second note is also dated 3 June 1781. Hamilton is upset that she will
not have the opportunity of seeing Gunning before she leaves. The third
note is dated 5 June 1781 and concerns Hamilton's health.

Editorial declaration: First edited in the project 'Unlocking the Mary Hamilton Papers' (Hannah Barker, Sophie Coulombeau, David Denison, Tino Oudesluijs, Cassandra Ulph, Christine Wallis & Nuria Yáñez-Bouza, 2019-2023).
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.
