Catherine Talbot to Elizabeth Carter, 15 July 1751: "I am fallen in love with Plutarch"s Morals, a little of which my lord reads us now and then out of a very so so translation. They seem to me the most amiable, the most lively, and the least dry of any moral book, but "tis indeed very little I have heard of them. I am deep in the Memoires [sic] of the Duc de Sully, and exceedingly entertained by them. I make him my companion with pleasure, as he seems to have an honest, brave, and worthy heart [...] I am reading many other books, but will not trouble you with my thoughts of them till I have read them through."
