"If it were necessary for me, and I rejoice that it is not, to account for the way in which the following Letters came into my possession. I think I could as satisfactorily acquit myself…I have merely availed myself of an opportunity…I shall only observe, that when the packet, which contained the letters in question, came into my hands, it was not padlocked…If a few secrets should escape, or a few uneasy thoughts spring out like the plagues from Pandora's box…no sting may for a moment, wound an honest bosom" A curiosity: a "passing smile at folly".
