Older house (built 1960's) has a wiring problem on one circuit (other circuits are fine). Multimeter readings are:

Hot-Neutral: 120VAC
Hot-Ground: 78VAC
Neutral-Ground: 42VAC

Devices plugged into this circuit work, as do switches and lamps, but I'm guessing none of them are grounded properly.

Any ideas what's causing this?
