Elizabeth Carter, 1717-1806: An Edition of Some Unpublished Letters
Edited by Gwen Hampshire
This edition includes 111 letters and a brief note. Written by Miss Carter, they date from October 1737 to May 1804, less than two years before her death. they have not been published before and are a very small portion of the thousands of letters that she sent and received. Part of their value lies in the fact that they provide a better understanding of the learned, religious person whom her nephew, Montagu Pennington, wishes to portray in his Memoirs of Miss Carter. They show how generous and dependable a friend she was; how faithful in keeping contact; how witty and lighthearted she could be; and how serious.About the Editor
