Charlotte, Queen Consort to George III

Description

The Nature of Yr Complaints are such, that with all my very best wishes & my Natural Inclination toward You. I do ['I do' crossed out] Turn it in whatever way I can I cannot possibly begin th ['th' crossed out] any Conversation upon it with the Kg...I enter most Sincerely unto Yr Feelings & see with great Sorrow the Effect it has upon Yr Mind. But I am also very anxious my dear that You should well Consider before You take any determined Step, The present Times & the Mischief which may arise in Public Affairs if at this present moment You should Consent to take a different part in Governme ['Governme' crossed out] Parliament to what You have done. It may answer in giving a momentary Distress to Government, but what is the Consequence of that hereafter? It is this. That every opposition to the Crown, Headed by the ['the' crossed out] a Branch of the Royal Famyly Lessens the power of the Crown! & I am sure it cannot be Yr interest to assist in that. The Duke of Clarence joyning You upon this occasion may to the World prove a unanimity between You, but His doing that, Strikes me as very disadvantageous to the rest of Yr Brothers, For what dependence can the Kg evver have upon them ['them' crossed out] any of them When after having once taken their Seat in the House of Lords they can be led to oppose His Government at any Time' Signed
