Anonymous. Dedication to Lord Hervey, bishop of Derry, signed 'Martin Sherlock'. Sherlock was an Irish clergyman and chaplain to the earl of Bristol. Some of the letters are dated, placing the author in Rome on 1 October 1778 and in Naples on 3 February 1779. Soane met Frederick Augustus Hervey, bishop of Derry and later earl of Bristol, in September or October 1778 in Rome. As the bishop's protégé Soane travelled with him to Naples from late December 1778 until March 1779, making it likely that Soane and Sherlock were acquainted. Imprint from Weller, Bd. 2, p. 209.
