Excerpt from Court Life Below Stairs, Vol. 3: Or London Under the First Georges, 1714-1760 IV. Are no less interesting and instructive, to those who study the social history and manners of courts, than those Of George I. And George II.; and, it is mournful to assert, are far more scandalous. George III., it is true, was from the day of his marriage a moral man; but the grossly voluptuous and glaringly corrupt exampleof his immediate predecessors yet affected the conduct of his courtiers and tainted them grievously. Concerning George IV. There can be no second Opinion. As in the former volumes, so in these I have omitted as much as possible all reference to politics, save where they are responsible for the actions of kings, princes, and courtiers. N 0 statement is made with out authority; and due care has been taken to paint faithful portraits of the various characters introduced. To give a vivid picture of the Court life, neither time nor labour has been spared. For this purpose, I have consulted upwards of five hundred volumes, principally autobiographies, bio graphies, correspondence, and diaries, like wise manuscripts, pamphlets, newspapers, and the ballad literature Of the day.
