<p style='text-align: justify;'>Letter from Martha Carolina Goldsworthy to Mary Hamilton, relating to Goldsworthy’s workload and life at Kew. She notes that her life at Kew is not to be envied and details how her time is spent. She writes that the previous week ‘we went 3 times to Queen’s House the time we spend there might be agreeable, but it is quite the reverse, & I return back to this Dungeon [...] heated to Death & wishing, what I never did before in my Life, for the hour of going to Bed’. She continues to detail her duties at court and of the princes. Goldsworthy writes that as for news, the newspapers will be able to inform of all there is know as there is no private news, excepting ‘our dull routine’. She continues on the King’s speech which she notes was universally approved of and ‘I believe likewise that it is much suspected that he Americans have been at the bottom of the Riot’. Goldsworthy is glad to hear that Princess Elizabeth is behaving well and hopes that it will continue as she is ‘capable of it if she’ chooses and continues her letter on other acquaintances at court. </p><p style='text-align: justify;'>Dated at Kew House.</p><p style='text-align: justify;'>Original reference No. 44.</p>
