Notes
Lady Caroline's quotation contains errors, which are more prominent in the second half transcribed here. She combines sentences from different paragraphs. Inchbald's text actually reads: 'She wished it had been kinder, even for his sake who wrote it---because she thought so well of him, and desired still to think so well, that she was sorry at any faults that rendered him less worthy of her good opinion. The cold civility of his letter had this effect---her clear, her acute judgment felt it a kind of prevarication to promise to write---and then write nothing that was hoped for. But enthralled by the magic of her passion, she shortly found excuses for the man she loved, at the expence of her own condemnation: ""He has only the fault of inconstancy,"" she cried, ""and that has been caused by my change of conduct---had I been virtuous still, he had still been affectionate."" Bitter thought!' Transcribed by Lindsey Eckert.
