Letters from Yorick to Eliza


Letter 3 [London, March 1767]

Yorick has dined with the 85 year-old Lord Bathurst, who had been a friend of Alexander Pope and who proposed a toast to Eliza, expressing a desire to meet her. Eliza has put her picture of Yorick above her writing desk, which pleases him, as does the news that her shipmates are friendly.
