PAMELA 

OR 

VIRTUE REWARDED 

by Samuel Richardson 

PUBLISHERS' NOTE 

Samuel Richardson, the first, in order of time, of the great English
novelists, was born in 1689 and died at London in 1761.  He was a printer
by trade, and rose to be master of the Stationers' Company.  That he also
became a novelist was due to his skill as a letter-writer, which brought
him, in his fiftieth year, a commission to write a volume of model
"familiar letters" as an aid to persons too illiterate to compose their
own.  The notion of connecting these letters by a story which had
interested him suggested the plot of "Pamela" and determined its
epistolary form--a form which was retained in his later works.
