Letter to Miss Ewing October 3 1778 "Modern history indeed refutes my wise conclusions, by presenting us with an almost similar character [ie to one in fiction], Lord Bolingbroke, whom Pope distinguishes by the epithet of all-accomplished St. John. He addressed his Essay on Man to him, and speaks of him on all occasions with the most enthusiastic admiration. Swift does almost the same; and Chesterfield, who only saw him in extreme old age, when he might be thought to have outlived his talents and his graces, was yet dazzled with his person and address ?. ?. Thus, without heart, without truth or morals, this man [ie Lord Bolingbroke] was enabled to captivate and do mischief, not only all his life, but even after death. The deistical writings he left behind were not the result of self-conviction, or a desire to convince others, but the mere vanity of exploring the trackless wastes of speculation, of overthrowing established opinions, and thus creating a region in which to rule. It was like Satan?s expedition in search of some domain, where he might exercise power and produce misery".
