Oh no she DIDN'T! Bess on Marie Antoinette and Polignac

After sensing some hostility from the court of France, Bess writes to Georgiana and blames this on jealousy of their friendship:

"If the Queen were Jealous of me I...will do all that is for your care & comfort...& shall give Madame P[olignac] no cause for jealousy. I will try to gain her friendship, & shall ever do all I can to prove to you mine."
