Publisher's Synopsis

"The Fortunate Foundlings was one of Eliza Haywood's more successful novels, though it remains one of her lesser known works. It tells the story of a brother and sister left as babies in the care of a gentleman. Like many another eighteenth-century foundling, the siblings leave their guardian behind and make their own way in the world ... Also published here for the first time is her anonymous pamphlet of 1750, A Letter from H--- G---g, Esq., ostensibly a letter from Charles Edward Stuart's aide-de-camp, travelling with him after the prince's expulsion from France. Seemingly a straightforward expression of Jacobite sympathies, it also encodes support for the Patriot cause of the 1740s and '50s."--Back cover.
