Laurence Sterne,-Letters from Yorick to Eliza







ELIZA will receive my books
with this, the summons came
all hot from the heart: I wish
that I cou'd give them any title to be
offered to yours: the others came from
the head; I am more indifferent about
their reception ---

I know not how it comes, but I
am half in love with you -- I ought to
be wholly so; for I never valued (or
saw more good qualities to value) or

            B             thought


thought more of one of your sex than
of you -- So adieu.

         Yours faithfully,
            If not affectionately,
               L -- S --- NE
