Aaron Hill to Samuel Richardson, 17 December 1740: "You have agreeably deceived me into a surprise, which it will be as hard to express, as the beauties of Pamela. Though I opened this powerful little pie with more expectation than from common designs of like promise, because it came from your hands for my daughters, yet who could have dreamed he should find, under the modest disguise of a novel, all the soul of religion, good breeding, discretion, good-nature, wit, fancy, fine thought and morality? I have done nothing but read it to others, and have others again read it to me, ever since it came into my hands [...] if I lay the book down, it comes after me. When it has dwelt all day long upon the ear, it takes possession, all night, of the fancy [goes on to request that Richardson let him know the name of the author, saying "since I feel him the friend of my soul, it would be a kind of violation to pretend him a stranger"]"
