AbstractLetter to Alex. Hamilton, P.M., Queenston, from Robert Hamilton, Hamilton. The letter states that George will be sent to school at Lewiston, and he has enclosed the first quarterly payment to be paid in advance, as requested by the Academy. He wishes for George to have a good English education, after which he will be old enough to judge for himself what kind of life he wants to follow. He notes that if the Academy can find bed and bedding for him, he would do so. If not, he asks Hamilton to arrange for accommodation, as well as other necessary articles such as books, pens and ink. He also asks that Dr. Hill attend to him professionally and charges to him quarterly. He requests that George not play with the school boys until he has recovered from his weakness, but may walk about the grounds for exercise. He is also not allowed to leave the school to go to Queenston except once every two weeks, and that he attend church every Sunday, August 1, 1837. Postmarked Hamilton Aug. 2 (date handwritten).
