Excerpt from The Works of Daniel Defoe, Vol. 1 of 2

Moll Flanders, published in January, 1722, makes a claim, like so many of Defoe's narratives, to a manuscript source. There is no pretence, however, that the manuscript is reproduced exactly. "The original of this story is put into new words," wrote Defoe in his preface, "and the style of the famous lady we here speak of is a little altered..." It has generally been under-stood that this statement of our author was only a fiction to make his book sell; the opinion has never prevailed widely, as in the case of the Memoırs of a Cavalier, that this work was from another hand than Defoe's. True, some of the more ignorant eighteenth-century readers were imposed upon, as Defoe hoped they would be, and Moll Flanders has been accepted by a few people as a real person. A chap-book published in Dublin in 1730, which pretended to supplement Defoe's information about her, her "governess," and her Lancashire husband, stated that she and her husband settled finally in Galway, where she died in April, 1723, seventy-four years old.

Book Description Forgotten Books, 2017. Paperback. Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****. Excerpt from The Works of Daniel Defoe, Vol. 1 of 2 If I swing by the string, I shall bear the bell ring, And then there s an end of poor J enny. The gloomy sadness of Newgate we see, on the other hand, on the day when some of the criminals are to be executed. The next morning there was a sad scene indeed in the prison. The first thing I was saluted with in the morning was the tolling of the great bell at St. Sepulchre s, which ushered in the day. As soon as it began to toll, a dismal groaning and crying was heard from the condemned hole, where there lay six poor souls, who were to be executed that day, some for one crime, some for another, and two for murder.
