1795-1799

N.B. Eliza Fenwick's letters to Mary Hays begin in this section. Most were published by A. F. Wedd in The Fate of the Fenwicks in 1927, but almost all the material in the letters relating to Mary Hays and her family members in London was excised by Wedd, for reasons not known. All excisions by Wedd have been restored in this edition and appear in highlight.
