Manley,. (n.d.). Memoirs of Europe. Retrieved from

Excerpt: SIR, As a Dedication is of necessity towards the Ornament of a Work of this Kind, I cou?d not hesitate upon my Choice, because Experience (and the Example of the Indians, who in the Worship of their Demons, consult only Fear, which seems to be their strongest Passion) has taught me to secure any One that might have been my Hero, from the well?bred, further Reflections, of so polite a Pen as yours. Tho? your Worship, in the Tatler of November the Tenth, has been pleased to call a Patron the Filthiest Creature in the Street, &c. yet I cannot but observe, in innumerable Instances, you are so delighted with such Addresses, as even to make ?em to your self: I hope therefore, a corroborating Evidence of your Perfections, may not be unacceptable. I Have learnt from your Worship?s Lucubrations, to have all the Moral Virtues in Esteem; and therefore take this Opportunity of doing Justice, and asking a certain worthy Gentleman, one Capt. Steele, pardon; for ever mistaking him for your Worship; for if I persever?d in that Accusation, I must believe him not in Earnest, when he makes me these following Assurances in a Letter, which according to your Example, Sir, who seem prodigiously fond of such Insertions, I venture to Transcribe Verbatim.
