In 1805 Susannah Middleton travelled with her husband, Captain Robert Middleton, to Gibraltar where he was to run the naval dockyard. Abroad for the first time, Susannah maintained a regular correspondence with her sister in England. Casting light on a collection of letters yet to be fully published, the paper gives an account of Susannah‘s experiences as described to her sister. Consideration is given to Susannah‘s position as the wife of a naval officer and her own view of the role she had to play in her husband‘s success. Written at a time when an officers wife could greatly improve his hopes for advancement through the judicious use of social skills, the Middleton letters provide evidence of an often overlooked aspect of the workings of the Royal Navy.

their upbringing. Their light and uninhibited tone when recalling this period was in direct contrast to the despondency present when discussing sex. Brown’s rendering of ‘pious femininity’ placed power in the hands of central authorities such as the Church and the state, casting individual women as inert victims of social control. 58 There has, though, been a move to challenge this reading of gendered

that cardinal is formed from the Latin cardo (hinge), because through them the doors of hell are opened. I say that they are the two daughters of the horseleech, of which we learn in Proverbs 30[:15]: ‘The horseleech hath two daughters that say: Bring, bring’. They do not take the place of the apostles, since all of the apostles were bishops. Many of [those cardinals], though, are not priests. But they seem inferior to the one of which we are told in Mark 9:[37]: ‘Master, we saw one casting out devils in thy name, who followeth us not’. As is clear from Christ
