Evidence

"In Dublin, she complained that she was not reading a great deal, but in the same breath remarked that books provided her only relaxation. She must have at least browsed in the volume of Cowper"s poems and another of sermons by her friend John Hewlett which Johnson sent her. She told Everina at one point that she was reading ""some philosophical lectures, and metaphysical sermons - for my own private improvement"". These works could well have included the writings of Dr Price. The only writer in this field whom she singled out for comment, however, was the orthodox William Paley, whose ""Principles of Moral and Political Philosophy"" she commended to Eliza for its definition of virtue: ""the doing good to mankind in obedience to the will of God, and for the sake of everlasting happiness""."
