Evidence

Catherine Talbot to Elizabeth Carter, 16 August 1751: "Our present after-supper author is Mr Pope, in Mr Warburton"s edition. Is it because one"s strongest partialities, when in any point deceived, turn to the strongest prejudice of dislike, that I read those admirable poems and letters with a considerable mixture of pain and indignation? [...] one can scarce help looking upon all those eloquent expressions of benevolence and affection as too much paradox, while one sees them overbalanced by such bitterness and cutting severity [comments further]."
