Description - General Correspondence of James Boswell, 1766--1769 by James Boswell

Offering the texts of letter between Boswell and 123 correspondents, this volume covers Boswell through the early stages of his legal career in Edinburgh and closes shortly after the time of his marriage to his penniless Ayrshire cousin, Margaret Montgomerie. Among various topics, the volume traces the aftermath of Boswell's vigorous partisan legal and journalistic involvement with the Douglas Cause, the beginnings of his patronage of an obscure struggling playwright and poet, William Julius Mickle, and the publication and reception of his successful "Account of Corsica" and his efforts to rouse British interest in the Corsican cause.
