TEI-encoded version

THE highly entertaining novel of Belinda, and the instructive tale of Griselda, are inserted by the obliging permission of their author. That of Belinda is here printed from a copy corrected purposely for this Selection, and has undergone considerable alterations. With regard to these productions, the intelligent reader can want no index-hand to point out the wit of Lady Delacour, or the animated dialogue of Griselda; and the editor feels it would be superfluous to indulge her feelings in dwelling on the excellencies of an author so fully in possession of the esteem and admiration of the public.
