Evidence

Elizabeth Carter to Catherine Talbot, 4 March 1751: "You need not make any apologies about my Rambler [No. 100]. I had no idea when I sent it to you that it was worth a second reading [...] Having honestly told you my humility, I will now, with equal honesty, tell you my vanity, that upon the whole it pleases me better than Mr Richardson"s Rambler [identified by source ed. as probably No. 97]. Do you like that Paper? and will you be angry with me for not liking it at all? I cannot see how some of his doctrines can be founded on any other supposition than that Providence designed one half of the human species for idiots and slaves. One would think the man was, in this respect, a Mahometan."
