Diary and Letters of Madame D'Arblay, Vol. 1

Excerpt from Diary and Letters of Madame D'arblay, Vol. 1: 1778 to 1784 May we not, however, venture to affirm that all these supposed requisites were united in the case of madame d'arblay, whose journals and letters are now offered to the public? As an author she has long been known to the world, and the high place which her works have held in public estimation for more than sixty years, renders criticism and comment superfluous. Her long and virtuous life is now closed, and those who have derived pleasure and instruction from her publications may feel interested in reading her private journals, and thus becoming acquainted with the merits and peculiarities of her individual character; more especially as the timidity which made her always shrink from observation, confined to the circle of her chosen friends that knowledge of her intimate feelings and real excel lence which won in no common degree their respect and love. We would also hope there may be a moral use in presenting the example of one who, being early exalted to fame and literary distinction, yet found her chief happiness in the discharge of domestic duties, and in the friendship s and attachments of pri vate life. Frances burney, the second daughter and third child of Dr. Burney, was born at Lynn Regis in Norfolk, on the 13th of June, 17 52. Her father had in the preceding year accepted the office of Organist to that royal borough, having been obliged by ill health to quit London, and to relinquish prospects.
