"Think not, mistaken Oliver, that because I have never declared my knowledge of the base malignity of your heart (which I would gladly have hid even from myself) that I have not perceived your vain efforts of conquering my mind and rendering me miserable."
— Fielding, Sarah (1710-1768) and Jane Collier (bap. 1715, d. 1755)
(III.v.4, pp. 268-72)
