The Maidservant in 1829

Loretta reports:

Leigh Hunt's description in the 1829 Gentleman's Pocket Magazine is so delightful that it was difficult to choose an excerpt.  I chose this section because it offers a poignant glimpse of the maidservant's private life—the precious little she had.  You can read the entire piece (and I think it's well worth reading) here.
