<p style='text-align: justify;'>Letter from Margaret Planta to Mary Hamilton. The letter relates to the Royal family and Planta's post as sub-governess. The King and Queen have recently returned to Kew, which Planta is glad of as Miss Goldsworthy was in waiting each evening whilst the King and Queen were away and is now 'far from well. She writes of her daily routine as sub-governess. Planta is at Kew House from ten thirty until six o'clock, and is alone with the princesses from twelve until three o'clock, 'Your hours of attendance'. She attempts to keep the princesses as quiet and as 'much employed as possible, particularly Princess Augusta'.</p><p style='text-align: justify;'>Planta notes that she has been ill and is 'indebted to Kew' for her 'troublesome complaints'. She is obliged to take frequent walks despite the cold weather and the house she reports is damp 'enough to undermine any constitution'.</p><p style='text-align: justify;'>A section of the letter has been censored.</p><p style='text-align: justify;'>Original reference No. 2.</p>
