Third and Fourth VOLUMES,
THE Two former Volumes of PAMELA
met with a Success greatly exceeding the most fanguine Expectations : And the Editor hopes, that the Letters which compose these, will be found equally written to Nature, avoiding all romantic Flights, improbable Surprises, and irrational Machinery; and that the Pasions are touched, where requisite, and Rules, equally New and Practicable; inculcated, throughout the Whole, for the General Conduct of Life: And, therefore, he flatters himself, that they may expect the good Fortune, which few Continuations have met with, to be judged not unworthy the First Part; nor disproportioned to the more exalted Condition in which Pamela was destined to shine, as an affectionate Wife, a faithful Friend, a polite and kind Neighbour, an indulgent Mother, and a beneficent Mistress; after having in the Two former Volumes supported the Character of a dutiful Child, a spotlefs Virgin, and a modest and amiable Bride.
