The Mary Hamilton Papers

<p style='text-align: justify;'>Letter from Martha Carolina Goldsworthy to Mary Hamilton. She describes a visit to Lady Charlotte Finch, and writes approvingly of Miss Planta. She reports that Finch is suffering from an 'uneasy feeling in her Head' and violent coughing fits morning and evening. 'I am clear that what I always suspected is true & that L[or]d Winchilsea[']s departure &c &c is the cause of her Complaint, she talked of him to me & cryed'. Goldsworthy is pleased to hear that Princess Elizabeth's condition is improving. The princesses have gone out with the Queen and Goldsworthy comments that 'it may seem odd, but I litteraly do not know where they are gone, tho I rather suspect to Mr Nevills.' She adds that 'Miss Planta [Margaret Planta (1754-1834), another attendant to the princesses] is as usual the most pleasing best humored Creature that can be, & is of infinite Service to me'.</p><p style='text-align: justify;'>Dated at the Queen's Lodge.</p><p style='text-align: justify;'>Original reference No. 41.</p>
