LETTER I. Clarissa to Miss Home.Gives a

particular account of her meeting Lovelace ; of

her vehement contention with him; and, at last,

of her being terrified out of her predetermined

resolution, and tricked away. Her grief and

compunction of heart upon it. Lays all to the

fault of corresponding with him at first against

paternal prohibition. Is incensed against him

for his artful dealings with her, and for his selfish

love, .

II. Mr Lovelace to Joseph Leman.--A letter

which lays open the whole of his contrivance to

get off Clarissa,

mil. Joseph Leman. In answer,
IV. Lovelace to Belford In ecstasy on the suc-

cess of his contrivances. Well as he loves Cla-
rissa, he would shew her no mercy, if he thought
she preferred any man living to him. Will re-
ligiously observe the INJUNCTIONs she laid
upon him previous to their meeting,
v. * Clarissa to Miss Howe. A recriminating

conversation between her and Lovelace. He re-
minds her of her injunctions; and, instead of
beseeching her to dispense with them, promises
a sacred regard to them. It is not, therefore, in
her power, she tells Miss Howe, to take her ad-
vice as to speedy marriage. (A note on the place,
justifying her conduct, p. 16.] Chooses not tó
go to any of his relations : and why. Is attend-
ed by Mrs Greme, Lord M.'s housekeeper at The
Lawn, who waits on her to her sister Sorlings,
with whom she consents to lodge. His looks
offend her. Has written to her sister for her

clothes,

VI. Lovelace to Belford.Gives briefly the par.

ticulars of his success. Describes her person and

dress on her first meeting him. Extravagant

exultation. Makes Belford question him on the

honour of his designs by her : and answers

doubtfully,

VII. Miss 'Howe to Clarissa.--Her sentiments

on her narrative. Her mother, at the instigation

of Antony Harlowe, forbids their correspond-

ence. Mr Hickman's zeal to serve them in it.

What her family now pretend, if she had not

left them. How they took her supposed pro-

jected flight. Offers her money and clothes.

fidence in Lovelace. Her brother and sister will
not permit her father and uncles to cool, 23
VIII. IX. Clarissa to Miss Howe.-Advises her

to obey her mother, who prohibits their corre-
spondence. Declines to accept of her offers of

3 away by him as she was, cannot immediately

treat him with great complaisance. Blames her

for her liveliness to her mother. Encloses the

10 copy of her letter to her sister,

12 XI. From the same.-Men need only be known

to be rakes, he says, to recommend themselves

to the favour of the sex. Wishes Miss Howe

were not so well acquainted with Clarissa : and

why,

XII. From the same. Intends to set old Antony

at Mrs Howe, to prevent the correspondence be-

predominant passion. Rallies Belford on his

person and appearance. Takes humorous notice

of the two daughters of the widow Sorlings,

32

XIII. Lovelace to Belford.Farther triumph

over the Harlowes. Similitude of the spider and

Prides himself that they do,

XIV. Clarissa to Miss Étowe.-- Particulars of an

her injunctions,
